    Go with me on this one, there is very little data to support this, its just a hunch.

    Ato Boldon talked about hitting a 'sweet spot' when transitioning from the curve the straight in a 200m. Even at the pedestrian pace I ran a 200m in, if you get it right, there is what feels like a sling shot effect that gives you that momentum in the first 50m of the straight. ...
    Elementary physics in action; you're no longer fighting the curve and as that counter-force goes away you're going to momentarily feel "lighter." And your running motion goes back to being normal straight-line motion. Whether or not you actually go any faster or not, on the other hand....

        It's seems to be a lot more common for women than men. It's common for women's 100 PR's to less than half of their 200 PR's.
