  • Worst Mens Event of 2008?

    at least for depth, with only 7 performers who make the top1000 performances of all-time (and this an Olympic year)?

  • #2
    No idea what the answer is, but "worst" and "fewest marks in the top 1000" aren't necessarily the same thing at all.

      I'll guess 400H.

        Methinks you've counted wrong. Here is where the #8 mark from 2008 falls on the all time list (using pela's lists of course).

        100: T15
        200: T81
        400: T64
        800: T221
        1500: T340
        Mile: 202
        5000: 159
        10000: 74
        3000St: 263
        Marathon: T20
        110H: T25
        400H: T419
        HJ: T253
        PV: 154 (I don't know why pela doesn't have this listed at T135)
        LJ: T400
        TJ: T222
        SP: T412
        DT: T117
        HT: T365
        JT: T335
        Dec: T176

        I refuse to acknowledge the walks, so somebody else is going to have to look that up.

          ??!!

          #8 on the 2008 m400H list is 48.50.
          That doesn't even make the top 1000 performances on pela's list.

            Eh, I was listing the 8th performance, not the 8th performer. Carry on.

                I won't prolong the agony: it is the 400H. Now you can let your breath out. However the 110 hurdle's, except for the WR, is only marginally better, with the 10 best performer coming in at #856.

                    In my opinion it was the mens LJ. Saladino won the OG, but he was not close to last year's form. And no one else was any good.

                      8.73 outweighs a whole lot of poor competitions, and looking at the last few
                      seasons (including the olympic 2004) the overall level was decent. Obviously,
                      compared with the hey-days of Lewis, we are poorly served...

                        Fine jump, but his only one over 8.40 all season. Last year he had five meets over 8.40; two years ago he had eight meets over 8.40.

                              In only (re-)stating the obvious here: The 1.500m event lacks a power-puncher. Folks will hover around 3.29 for a few more years, because the crop of guys who have assumed the leadership role(s) are finess runners who don:t lay it out at 2.44-2.46.
