  • 2008 WRs

    Time to have our 2008 predictions

    mWRs in

    100
    oh so close in 400, but no
    Steeple
    oh so close in 110H, but no
    DT, if the winds are there
    reasonably close in the Dec
    4x1
    4x4
    Mar again?

    wWRs in

    400, closer than you'd think
    Steeple
    5000
    HJ?!
    PV?!
    TJ is a reasonable expectation
    4x1 maybe

    this is probably pie-in-the-sky, but that's what we live for round'bout these parts!

    110h in front of the Chinese should push whoever wins over that WR line if all the usual ingredients are there in place. Liu Xiang is their OG hopeful. I can imagine the roars to louder than those heard when Freeman ran in Sydney.

    Vlasic will clip the WR barring injury.

      Define close - I don't think we'll see a sub48 and anything else is not even in the same timezone as the wr

        I reckon there's more chance of a women's 400mH record than a flat 400m WR...

          100 men
          400 men
          HJ women

            The women's 5000m could be revised again by Defar, the men's 20km walk by Kanaykin, plus Volkova looks capable of break the 9-minute barrier in the steeplechase. In theory, so does Samitova, who has set PB's on the track at 800m, mile, 2000m and 3000m (hasn't run a 5000), if she gets back into shape after her second half season blip.

              i still got 1993 on my mind, i think the chinese will get some world rcords.
              i will pick
              100 tyson g.
              400. jeremy wariner
              steeple kipkoech
              10k a surprise kenyan
              marathon geb again 20359
              for the women
              800 a chinese girl
              5k defar
              400h tiffany rosswilliams she is from my former neighborhood so this pick is probably more with my heart than head.
              lots of world junior records by chinese girls never heard of before 2008 and probably not after either.

                dont forget 2007 is not over if samual wanjiru is in 5833 half marathon shape he can get the marathon record at fukuoka on december 2nd, but he ran poorly in udine so we will have to see.

                  with my pick for the womens 800, i was reading an article by frank horwill the famed british coach where he showed half milers like coe who had a best 400 of 46.9 so his half mile record was basically his best quarter time x 2 and add 4 seconds a lap. there were others like wohlhuter who could do 400 time x 2 plus 3.5 seconds per lap. so if there is a girl who can run 51-52 they could be considered fast, but watch the olympics on tv, but if they move them to 800 that record is long overdue the usa has tons of women who could move up but dont. so maybe the chinese will rather have the 51-52 second women runner winning gold at 800 rather than being a non factor at 400.

                    [quote="800 a chinese girl
                    .[/quote]

                    are you drunk no-one is touching the 8 record :shock:

                    the 5k can go again to defar but even more so by dibaba if she can be bothered

                    HJ
                    PV

                    4H if lashinda gets; her act together she has 49 speed and very good technique
                    i deserve extra credit

                      Racewalking records

                      I think the Chinese are well set up for some racewalking records, men and women, senior and junior.

                        unfortunately for him, 3'30 guys ran 12'39...
