    gh:

    If what you say is true, then how can Omega have Trinidad and Tobago's leadoff at 45.1 when Butler has him at 44.6? You are saying Omega should be faster.

      Hence the T&FN/Butler splits being in 10ths for the first leg. They're either taken by somebody competent with a watch or off T&FN video (which is also only good to the 10th).
      We all know that. You did not address the issue of some of Butler's split not adding up to the total time, especially GBR. Maybe you just typed something wrong?

        I don't know if your post was directed at me, but I got 44.85 from your earlier post.

          More to the point, and with all due respect to GH, if all the Omega splits were all taken at the finish line, then the runner in lane 9 would be seeing a split along the lines of 39.7, the guy in lane 8 might be 40.2, and so on. Even the inside runner in lane 2 would be off by an entire half-lap stagger.

          The splits they published weren't that preposterously far off, so someone at Omega was at least making an attempt at real splits.

                But the omega split was 44.55 and the UKA one was 43.5 but you were arguing 43.5 was wrong?

                  MArk is one of the most hardworking, attentive people you could ever meet. He had probably been up for 24 hours when he did this, it is unboubtedly a mistake

                    Two obscure facts of the day: 1-I believe that since setting the world record in Tokyo, the USA men are 1 for 3 in Olympic or World Championship 4x4 cities with two "o" vowels in its name (London (loss), Edmonton (DQ); Tokyo (win). How will it fare in Moscow and/or Rio De Janeiro?

                    2-No nation has had a team in every Olympic 4x400m final held.
