  • All Africa Games (Brazzaville, Congo)

    Seems like a number of good marks coming in from this event.

    w100 La Tou 11.02
    m400 Makwala 44.35
    w400 Mupopo 50.22
    w800 Semenya 2.00.97

    Certainly more that I have missed.

        Is this being held at altitude? Those are some amazing sprint times. Makwala has looked pretty terrible post-Beijing (45.56 next-to-last in Zurich, 20.77 in Zagreb) but now a 44.35!?

        Something of an odd year for Makwala, his best times are 43.72 (at 1000ft), 44.11 (Beijing sf), 44.19 (Beijing qf), 44.35, 44.63 (Beijing final) ... then next best time is from way back in May, 45.10. Quite a few 45-mid and even a 46+ or two, other than that.

        I guess you could say that he either gets it all right or all wrong in his races.

        As for Meite, his previous PR was 10.06 (1.5) from London, 2012. Without actually checking via a conversion calculator, 10.04 with a -2.1 would be about 9.93 basic I think? Whereas his London mark would be about 10.13 basic (both without factoring in altitude, however).

          Quite often Makwala goes out and dies, still needs to find a proper 400m pacing strategy.

            Wikipedia says 320 m (1,050 ft) above sea level.

              The 43.72 was run at closer to 1000 meters not feet.

                Oops, duh ... silly typo on my part.

                  I was expecting a big breakthrough from her this year after she ran 50.87 last year in her first season of doing track. She'd only improved that by 0.01 this summer (in La Chaux-de-Fonds of all places) and disappointed in Beijing, but she's back on track now. Definitely someone to watch out for next year.

                  And it's interesting to see Kenya take silver in the women's 100! Eunice Kadogo with a big new NR of 11.47.

                      Interesting, and into a headwind. He ran 10.22 as an invite at the USATF Club Champs at Icahn Stadium in July.

                          That men's 4x400 was odd. Makwala was right on the shoulder of the Kenyan anchor at the exchange and could do nothing against him. What a hot and cold runner!

                            Yes, Makwala beat Mweresa in heat, semi and final, the latter by .66. However, Mweresa beat Makwala by a similar margin on the 4X4 anchor. Makwala also faded in the heat of the 4X4 in Beijing after going out too fast.

                            Tilastopaja does not have splits for the AG 4X4.
