  • Possibilities of Jeremy Wariner in the 800 meters

    We may never engaged in the 800 meters, but ....

    In connection with the topic "Percentage of loss of speed from 400 to 800"
    The comparison is made based on the results of other athletes who were great experts in 400 meters.

    Jeremy Wariner has something in their favor. NO has been a specialist in 200 meters.
    There is more limitation for athletes whose mark of 400 is based on its speed in the 200.

    Assuming the same loss that the following athletes, this is the result

    Alberto Juantorena. (16.85%) (44 "26" 1'43 "44)
    Jeremy Wariner. 43 "45 +16,85% = 1'41" 54

    Jarmila Kratochvilova (18.00%) 47 "99-1'53" 26)
    Jeremy Wariner 43 "45 +18,00% = 1'42" 54

    Mark Everertt (15.72%) (44 "59-1'43" 20)
    Jeremy Wariner 43 "45 +15,72% = 1'40" 56

    Ana Fidelia Quirot (15.34%) (49 "61-1'54" 44)
    Jeremy Wariner 43 "45 + 15.34% = 1'40" 23

    A curiosity Quirot-Wariner. 400-200 has the same relationship.

    Quirot-49 "61-23" 07 .. same ratio as 43"45-20"20 (Jeremy Wariner best mark of 20 '19.

    David K. Rudish 45 "50-1'41" 01 = 11.00%. , but I think in time of record could run 400 meters faster.

        Has Wariner ever publically commented on a desire to run the 800m?

          Very early in his career he was about as pointed as you can get that he would never go anywhere near the 800. He has been asked the question so many times now that I gather that it's an unpopular subject and he's not even amused by it anymore.

          We've had countless threads on the topic here.

            Some athletes have 'broad' peaks (i.e., across a wide range of distances), such as someone that can go from the 800 to the 5000 or even 10,000. Others have a more narrow band. It is not uncommon for 400m runners to have a narrow band because the are limited by not having enough speed to be at the same level in the 200 while the differences in the nature of the event limit their ability to move up to the 800.

            Above, Marlow cited Martin McGrady as one with the narrow peak at the 600, with lesser success at both the 400 and 800. For a while it seemed that Solinsky had his peak at the 'gap' distance of the 3000 (raced often, but not in championships except indoors), and thus was considering the Steeple. However, it seems that he has a broader range with good potential at the 10,000

                However what about Waringer having a stab at the 500 metres!

                The event is waiting for somebody to do less than 1.00.00.

                The record is 1.00.08 Donato Sabia ITA, 26 05 84; his PBs included 45.73 '84 & 1.43.88 '84.

                  I'm totally on board with this idea. But where can he find one or more official 500m races to enter?

                    I assume there is a physiological reason that some runners have a larger range than others. I wonder if just simple desire is another reason? Tyson Gay ran a PB 44.89 sec in the 400m back in May. I would think with more 400m-focused training he could run sub 44 easily, perhaps even challenge the world record.

                      Wariner would be stupid to even consider the 800. With his biggest 400 competitor in limbo, Wariner is a strong favorite to capture the WC and possibly OG the next two years. He'd have everything to lose by giving the 800 a try. That's not where he makes his money.

                        And remember that when JW was fantasizing about being a doubler, it was of the 200/400 variety.

                          Never imagined T&F would be that simple.

                            Hmmm - I have the very distinct remembrance of someone running 59.90! Was it on an oversized (which for outdoors would be undersized!) track?

                              It is only a small study on the potential of an athlete 43 "45 at 400 as is Jeremy Wariner on the basis of what other athletes who have run 400 to have succeeded in creating high level at 800 meters.
                              But an athlete who is a leader in a discipline is very difficult to decide to change discipline....
