    Re: If they only had a wind guage

    I personally am also suspicious of lots of times ending ..4, they seem to often be conversions.

    well noted Gardener et al...I'll be more careful before posting...It's just that I live in Texas and get sick of constantly reading 9.9's reported here....

    There was also a 40-second 400 meters in that meet, so hand timing may not be the problem--unless they have a realy quick finger.

    I was thinking the exact same thing and was actually wondering if you all would catch that. Nice one!

    Well, I think Ben Johnson's best was about 20.7. However, I agree with ghill that times which all end in 0 and claim to be FAT tend to be suspect.

    History tells us that when two out of three times end in zero (particularly in HS meets) be very wary of auto-timing claims.

    If they only had a wind guage

    Just saw this note on Dyestat.com (high school track)...

    Coldwater MS sr Trell Kimmons tripled 9.91 100m, 20.90 200m, and 47.90 400m. There was automatic timing but no wind gauge. Observors said there was no significant wind.
