    Great race. This is what the Olympic 100m should have looked like between Powell and Bolt.
    And it's because it wasn't the Olympics that this was a close...r race.

      I enjoy it for what it is and not what it could/should have been.

        and so . . .running at 2000m elevation with a 2.0 wind on a warm humid day is EXACTLY the same as sea-level, -2.0 wind on a cold rainy day. That's apples and apples? OK, I get it now - thanks!
        The timing devises work exactly the same at both venues.

        Reaction time is far more important to results and I don't see you "converting" for that do I?

        Hitting a hurdle is more important, as well, and I don't see you converting for that either, do I? .... strike that comment, you actually do rewrite results for hitting hurdles, and jump bars.

          You're the one who subscribes to conversion factors - I don't.

              malmo,
              You are right. ( :shock: ) 9.69 is the fastest time ever run under 'legal' conditions.
              If I may be so bold to ask you this question. Is it possible that the 9.69 is NOT the most impressive performance ever in the 100? If someone ran 9.69 on a dirt track, would that impress you more than Bolt's 9.69? What if Gay ran a 9.69 on a cold, rainy day into a 2.0 headwind? Would that be merely AS impressive as Bolt's 9.69? Just wondering.

                Why are you vandalizing yet another thread with your childish nonsense?

                Of course I'd be impressed with athletes who did what you said. I'd be impressed with them if they ran much slower than your idiotic scenarios.

                I'm most impressed by a WR in an Olympic final, period. There is no greater achievement in track and field.

                  Just amazing how Powell can perform when not under pressure. So what does it convert too in basic? I know malmo, just humour me, I'm not trolling.

                    I'm not malmo, but... please re-watch Bolt's 9.69. What actual 100 meter performance would you even suggest for the sake of discussion was more impressive?

                        Well, it is interesting that Bolt's reaction time in the Beijing 100 final was .165 and here it was .223, which is a difference of .058 sec, which of course would bring his 9.77 here down close to 9.71, or certainly 9.72, but this is only food for thought, and with the compromised nature of food, at least according to MattM, even this is causing me to gag...

                          Just saw JRM's post, I missed it first time through.

                          So is your estimate a recurring decimal or an irrational number? I just hate it when that happens. I always run out of ink on my printer. 8-)

                            Me too. It is the absolute pinnacle of athletic achievement. Comparing this race to Beijing in terms of greatness is ridiculous.

                                Especially given the margin of victory.
