    If Jeremy Wariner ran 45.2 right now he'd be ripped to shreds.

    April
    48.50 Edwin Moses Walnut 21.04.1979
    Looks like this just answered my question. And Kevin Young never broke 48.50 in April.

    I figured 48.32 in April to be slow because I remembered those 48.4x performances of Bronson in February, 1998. And that was before he got dirty. If 48.4 was possible in February, then 48.1 in April should be a cinch. Theoretically.

    There was a time, not too long ago (maybe 25 years max.), when fast times were common in April. When was the last WR set in April?

    But look at the empirical data. Hardly any of them ever do run faster in April, so it can't be that slow.

    I think we are agreeing that the southern hemisphere ones are probably not comparable due tot he different seasons?

    Danny Harris was only slightly faster. As I said, you are hard to please

    Actually quite impressive how many fast times Jackson has in early season (04, 06 and 08). I was surprised to see Rawlinson's time there too!
    Like I said, for a guy whose PR is 47.30, 48.1x should be a walk in the park, even in April. Personally, I usually expect these guys to be running 47.7x or 47.8x in May. That's why I think 48.3x in April is slow.

    By the way, that 48.05 low-altitude performance in Melbourne by Louis van Zyl is his best ever. Imagine if Bershawn was in that race. He probably would have broken 48.00 in March, even if March is summer for Australia and South Africa.

    I missed this post. Luckily I went digging for the report, and when that performance came up as last year's results, I knew something was wrong.

    I'm not exactly impressed. That kind of performance has been done in March. What's the fastest 400H time ever in April?
