  • Tyler Christopher

    I realize that it is a rarely run event but check out his 300 time below-top ten all time:

    yikes, that seems fast..

    it'd be fun to extrapolate but after that speed the last 100 of a 400 would be no fun at all =)

    i don't know about most places but its run pretty often indoors in high school where i'm from..

        you have to wonder.. 30.85.. he'd only need a 12.32 last 100m split to have topped his WR.. and.. well i'm doing it again, we can't pull a what-if here..

          VERY rarely run, and--to beat on my favorite drum--at about 500m of altitude.

            According to the wind calculator at

            http://desert.jsd.claremont.edu/~newt/t ... 00idx.html

            an altitude of 500-m will assist a zero-wind 200 by only 0.05-s. You'd expect only slightly more for a 300. So, the altitude doesn't really make *that* much of a difference, it seems.

              Are you talking about MJ's run or Tyler's?

                looks like pretoria, south africa is more like 1500 *meters*, not feet.. 4911 feet -- by that calculator, subtract 0.15 or something..

                if we're speaking about tyler christopher, im not sure exactly where that race is.. island of guadeloupe?

                    http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/fac ... os/gp.html

                    "Elevation extremes:
                    lowest point: Caribbean Sea 0 m
                    highest point: Soufriere 1,484 m "

                    However, just a quick look at the map of the location of the capital Basse-Terre leads one to presume it is pretty close to the lower end of that spectrum (to say nothing of what the name actually means).

                        So can we go back to waving the flag?

                          Tyler also ran a 15.17 in the 150m at the same meet, if you look at the company surrounding him on the all time 300m list it would lead you to think he is en route to 44 seconds.

                            This is a tough one to predict. Some of those names on the all-time list went on to big times in the 400m. Many of them 44.2 or better. Then there are names like Doug Walker, John Regis and Kirk Baptiste who were definitely not 400m men. It should be interesting to see if Tyler makes the big move.

                              Might as well do it now: unless the COC has some mysterious 300m qualifying standards we don't know about, that's as close as he's going to get.
