  • IAAF Hall Of Fame, Class of 2013

    I have no idea what methodology the boys in Monaco are going to use to add to their (flawed) original 24, but who do you think the leading candidates are?

    I ask because I was doing some prep work for this year's World Ranking issue of the magazine and I noted that the all-time leader in both points scored (single event) and years ranked didn't make the original cut.

    So who ranked for 21 (!) years, and scored 168 points (which translates as an average placing of No. 3 for more than a score of years)?

            I'm assuming they are not inducting another 24 next time :?

            Does anyone know what the procedure is for 2013?

            I'm assuming they'll find a way to induct Usain Bolt :roll:

              not Geb either.

              The published data on the HOF is that "at least 4" will be inducted every year.

              And that the criteria "may" change. (meaning the double-OG/WC gold stricture goes away, which is totally ludicrous in the overall scheme of things)

                  It seems, Lars Riedel was competing forever.

                    As is WR which means in the future no Allyson, Sanya, VCB, SAF, Maria Mutola, Anna Quirot, Hassiba Boulmerka, Rosa Mota, Gail Devers, Tatyana Lebedeva, Astird Kumbernuss, Valerie Adams, Carolina Kluft etc etc etc

                    I can't for the life of me work out who was ranked for 21 years i agree it has to be a thrower but no idea who :?
                    i deserve extra credit

                        Has this athlete been retired for 10 years or more? I believe that was one of the criteria.

                          Oh it's Heike

                          She wasn't even in Barcelona which i thought was strange at the time, but tandfman is right you have to be retired for 10 years before you can be inducted

                            Heike was my 2nd guess today. You told me I was wrong :?
