  • Sebastian Bayer

    Any Germans/German speakers with info about him since the European Indoors? What's the reaction been over there?

    Can't wait to see him again. The more I look at that jump, the more impressed I am . I see no reason to doubt its validity at all.

    Sebastian Bayer has not yet competed outdoors.

      I assumed he hadn't. I was hoping someone had some interview/gossip/purported plans/heinous rumours/whatever about him, that's all.

      Since Torino, he's gone under my very inefficient radar, so to speak.

        What are the Vegas odds that he'll ever come with 6" of his 'PR' again? I may want some of that action. I will gladly eat crow if he turns out to be the Real Deal, but . . .

            Brettboy reported on Mayer's status (has been a bit sick but back in swing'o'things) on this thread on May 19:

                Bayer opened his outdoor season with a 10.73 (0.4) over 100m behind Jamaica's Ryan Shields (10.43) in Bremen.

                His girlfriend Nytra opened with 13.10 over 100mh

                  I was told in the stadium by someone who knows these things that Turin had one of those 'sprung' runways that he likened to the one that Kasja jumped 2.08 on.

                  Nothing illegal about it and Bayer's jump was perfectly legit but I think if everything falls into place on such a surface you can get a huge flukey jump.

                  Don't know how factual any of that is but it rings true.

                  Now if someone could just come up with an explanation of Kotova's 7.42??? I was there and still think it's dodgy.

                    Highly unlikely. Sprung floors (gymnastics) have real springs like this:

                      you don't need springs: when you were at Stanford, your basketball court had a sprung floor. This ancient thread:

                      <<Re sprung floors, and "Joe Indian's" mention of Maples Pavilion, Stanford is pulling that floor out.

                      http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercuryn ... 716113.htm

                      what's not in the on-line version is the diagram that was in the paper which showed (of interest to engineers only?)

                      <<4 layers of crisscrossing beams are spaced so that no one beam is directly under another, and no point on the floor connects directly with the concrete foundation>>

                      bottom layer: 2x4s, 4ft apart
                      second layer: 3x3s, 12 inches apart
                      third layer 3x3s, 8ft apart
                      top layer 2x4s, 4ft apart

                      The the floor itself on top of that.>>

                        I did not know that.

                        But . . . this LJ runway . . . really?

                          I'm just surprised that Stanford gave Marlow his own bball court! :shock: :lol:

                            Yeah, I was honored, but a little perplexed, given my 32% FT-shooting ability. ops:

                              This raises the question of what type of surface were the other big indoor LJs on. For instance, was Lamela's previous indoor euro record from a similar floor. What about King Carl's indoor WR.
