  • World Indoor 50m & 60m records

    After Bolt (9.58 and 19.19) and SAF's (10.73) performances in Berlin, do you think they pose a threat to these records? Believe it or not, they have never indoors according to their IAAF profiles.

    Men's
    50m 5.56 Donovan Bailey Reno, NV 1996
    60m 6.39 Maurice Greene Madrid, ESP 1998

    Women's
    50m 5.96 Irina Privalova Madrid, ESP 1995
    60m 6.92 Irina Privalova Madrid, ESP 1993

    I would be great to see them compete at the legendary Millrose Games. Wouldn't running indoors help prepare them for the outdoor season or make them more vulnerable mentally? Tell me your thoughts on it.

    There are lots of pro$ and cons to running indoors, but as far as I am concerned they have already broken th records, so need to even try.

      Fraser and Bolt are not ready to sprint in February as they still in their hills and grass running.
      To break a WIR, Millrose Games is not the place to be. Karlsruhe would be a better choice.

        I did the math and the new WRs are

        40y 4.35
        50y 5.12
        60y 5.87
        100y 8.87

          I still think running indoors and breaking those records would be a great way to upgrade mr Bolts "legend" status a little bit. His 50m split in the 200m (curve running) was 5.60, so that should be no problem

          But maybe Asafa is interested!

            I think Tyson has the most to gain by going after some.

              Seems like the place to go is Madrid, since 3 of them were set there.

              It's funny that you mentioned that. I wonder if Gay were to break one of those records, would that bait Bolt in order to do so also?!?!?!?

                But preventing Bolt from getting hurt after the finish, they need to build a better EXIT. Which means deducting costs from the prize money.

                  The track has been replaced.

                    Mardid sits at about 700m above sea level. That helps a bit (0.01s). Reno is at about 1300m. That helps more (0.02s). An indoor sea-level WR would be more impressive.

                      Didn't Mo Greene tie that WR in Los Angeles in 1999?

                        The old track was really quick

                          Bolt would have broke the 60 m record with 6.31:

                          http://berlin.iaaf.org/mm/Document/Deve ... _13529.pdf

                          Shelly-Ann Fraser's time at 60 m was 6.88 (WR):
