    2015 World 100mh silver medalist, and multiple european medalist, Cindy Roleder (33) is retiring after the indoor season. It looks like she will do some indoor 60mh races as well as a pentathlon.

    I love this thread. Is it possible we start another retirement link starting Jan 2023 and stop end of December 2023? Each year must have its own link IMO.

    I wish Powell would run an invitational 100m and break 40+ World Best in 100m

    Thanks.

    Don't think Mekhissi will be the one they select to light the torch in 2024.

    Imagine what he could have done in boxing and/or wrestling.

    Better known for assaulting a mascot, taking off his singlet during a race, and getting into a fight with another runner after a race.

    AP news article seems to have been removed, but here it is
    https://www.bakersfield.com/ap/sport...67c665c40.html

    3 time Olympic medalist and 2 time world medalist in the steeplechase. 5-time European Champion as well.

    Also famous for a few fights.

    A runner slaps and shoves a 14-year-old mascot. CNN's Jeanne Moos reports on "mascot abuse."For more CNN videos, check out our YouTube channel at http://www....

    Because of his insane amount of sub 10's Im sure things even out into the 90ish range anyway though

    Wow, thanks dj! Good information.

    Just looking at Larsson's site, I see Powell also had: 10.00 (-0.6), 10.00 (-0.5) and 10.01 (-0.7). He was sooo close.

    He also had 9.72 (+2.1), 9.75 (+2.6), 9.81 (+2.3), and 9.84 (+3.4). All sub-10 on Mureika's wind adjustment calculator.

    Add in one mark that was annulled because of a doping infraction = 98. Add a hand-timed 9.9 = 99.

    Different numbers depend on the person doing the counting.
