    No. Those "en route" times are recorded (sometimes), but can't count as records.

      Bolt is way to big for indoor track as someone stated, you would have to modify the track like the 150 showdown he ran to prevent injuries.Plus we all know that the outdoor season is more lucrative than the indoor season.

        SAF would easily break the 50 and 60m WR

          The problem isn't that they are splits. Many records have been set en route to other distances (including Privalova's current WR at 50 meters). It's just that 60 meter records are only recorded indoors.

            You mean make them straight? Are you sure you're not confusing Bolt with Michael Johnson?

              I thought we were talking of the 60 meters?

                I think he means the deceleration zone is not long enough.

                  I think he needs to get real. Bolt isn't moving so much faster than everyone else that the entire design of indoor tracks must be changed.

                  Besides, that's what high jump mats are for (lined up vertically against the wall)!

                    Obikwelu (about as tall as Bolt) gave up running indoors as he felt the deceleration put too much stress on his knees.

                      If Bolt is out for the WR and the only thing that stops him is the deceleration space that shouldn't be a problem. There are severals places where they have 100m straights indoor where he can run the first 60m and then celebrate the last 40m!

                      But guess that will never happen. Indoor meets usually have a smaller budget too, which in this case probably is a problem. Bolts contract with Diamond League next year will be something special!

                            Merlene Ottey's 6.00 would be the 50 m not-en-route indoor WR then

                              or was Marion Jones legal?
