    Given that 9.65 +2.7 converts to 9.77 with no wind, and given that his PB is 10.40, something seems wrong with these times.

    Also note that another Bermudan, Jeneko Place (10.71 PR) ran 9.91 (10.03 converted).

                  Wind decimal misplaced? 27mps would explain it.

                    No it would not, with the vector of 27mps/60mph and a possible peak wind speed twice that, there is not likely to be a race to report, nor a wind gauge to read. The winner would be the athlete with the biggest sail cross section. :lol:

                        On this topic, I was browsing through the wind-aided performances on alltime-athletics:

                        http://www.alltime-athletics.com/m100mno.htm

                        If you scroll to the bottom (wind-assisted, manual timing), you find these two gems:

                        22 9.9 +16.6 Christer Garpenborg SWE 12.02.52 1 Las Vegas 04.04.1976
                        22 9.9 +16.6 Clancy Edwards USA 09.08.55 2 Las Vegas 04.04.1976
                        Either that wind is in the wrong units, or they had a hefty 60 km/h breeze at their backs!

                            Here is the weather info I could easily grab for that date. The day before it was 64.9, then a low of 40, then a high of 68; the next day the high was 78. Thus, it was definitely spring weather, not really warm. That 64.9 was the coldest day between March 11 and the end of October. It would not be surprising for it to be very windy.
                            ... Date ... Rain Low High
                            1974-04-03 0.00 43.0 64.9
                            1974-04-04 0.00 39.9 68.0
                            1974-04-05 0.00 44.1 78.1

                              It was a Dark 'n' Stormy day for sure.
