    Not quite, but on the top-10 list, anyway.

    That was direct from Dyestat reporting...it was even misreported on thier Dyestat Cal page.

    Trackshark shows:

    1 Jerry Harris SR Texas Christian 45.52 02-13
    2 Darold Williamson JR Baylor 45.79 02-14
    3 Jason Barton JR Arizona St. 45.80 01-31
    4 Lewis Banda SO Arizona St. 45.82 01-31
    5 Jeremy Wariner SO Baylor 45.83 1-24

    Add this from IAAF:

    45.90 Alleyne Francique GRN

    Gives Coleman #7 on the list-leaders.

      Most of these were set on oversized tracks. Only Harris and Francique ran on standard 200 ovals, meaning Coleman actually IS no. 3 on the world list for this season (assuming his time was run on a standard track).

          Pocatello is at 4400 feet/~1400m altitude. A great mark, probably better than his amazing 46.58 in NYC.

            Truly amazing. This kid could turn pro after high school. Is he competing at U.S. indoors?

              A 45.92 at 1400m would be 46.23 according to the mathematical models at http://desert.jsd.claremont.edu/~newt/t ... 00alt.html.

                Everyone is always wanting to convert something ... The kid ran 45.92 ... Let him enjoy it ... Last time I checked the clock determined the time - not calculators ...

                  Well, if you want to get snotty about it...as far as I'm concerned, he ran a 45.92 in my eyes. There is no conversion necessary, and honestly, the conversion doesn't mean that much to me anyway. Some one made the statement, I happened to know where he might find something that would interesting. Loosen up a bit.

                    The problem with "enjoying" a mark like that is that it gives you a false sense of where you really are. Hopefully he's on a real roll and will keep improving his times, but if he suddenly discovers that he can't break 46 again no matter how hard he tries, he should be aware that it's because relative to the sealevel races he's going to follow this up with, he might actaully be running better even if the times are slower.
