  • Richards Faster than Outdoor AJR?

    Is Sanya Richards' 22.49 at the NCAA faster than the outdoor US Junior record for 200 metres? Is this some kind of first?

    No, Felix ran 22.11(A) last year

      Thanks, I was looking at the record list on the T&FN site and it still lists Marion Jones' 22.58.

        Hey, we just updated the indoor records with last year's stuff, and now you expect the outdoor to be up to date as well?! :-)

          I thought there was a problem with the ratification of that record?

            If a certain someone spent just a little less time yapping on the message boards, and tended to his REAL job, maybe he wouldn't be a YEAR behind in his work! Not that we're pointing fingers or anything.

              Felix's 22.11 not official?(no test) - so maybe Richards' 22.49 IS faster than outdoor AJR, surely for first time ever. (for what it's worth)
              Or do AJRs not require test?

                Felix's record was ratified as an AJR.

                  Without doping controls?

                    I'm just trying to get strait all the records Richards set last weekend. The 400 must have been an indoor WJR and indoor AJR. The 200 an Indoor AJR and 2nd outdoors to Felix's 22.11(A) that wasn't drug tested. All this and there was almost no mention in the press...What does the girl have to do?

                      IAAF requires specific dope test after meets for WR ratification; USATF does not require specific testing for AR ratification. Ergo, Felix can set AR without setting WR.

                        Note, too, that there are no official world indoor junior records. Neither the IAAF nor USATF recognizes indoor junior records as an official record category.

                          22.19 1,5 Natalya Bochina URS 04 01 1962 2 Moskva 30 07 1980
                          22.37 1,3 Sabine Rieger-Günther GER 06 11 1963 2 Cottbus 26 06 1982
                          22.42 0,4 Gesine Walther GER 06 10 1962 1 Potsdam 29 08 1981

                          Other than Felix these are the only juniors ever to run faster than Richards OUTDOORS. And other than her 22.11 at altitude, Felix has never run faster than Richards' 22.49 outdoors. That was some performance in Fayetville.

                            But if you think... take the first 6 finishers of both the men's and women's 200m and 400m races - 24 athletes in all. 10 of those 24 set indoor PBs that were faster (or equal to) their outdoor bests!

                            That Fayetteville track is like Atlanto, Tokyo, Maebashi and Lievin rolled into one!!!

                              "10 of those 24 set indoor PBs that were faster (or equal to) their outdoor bests!"

                              They still would have run faster outdoors. An indoor 200 on any track is inherently slower than an outdoor track. Richards will probably be the first American junior under 50 outdoors and may break the world junior 200 record.
