    However, it is moot; the Imperial version of the mark is merely a translation into American of the metric and thus the fraction is not completely irrelevant - it has not official role.

      In the introduction to the conversion tables in the Big Gold Book, I believe it describes T&FN’s strong disagreement with the IAAF Rule change to nearest centimeter in the long throws.

      It makes sense, then, that while the IAAF adopted a rule change that suggests an unlikely level of precision in measurement, the BGB tables would not compound the error and add fractions of inches to the unofficial (but widely accepted as the best from a statistical probability standpoint) conversion tables.

      I’m guessing that you may have picked up the conversion from the Live Results site of the timing company involved. I recently pointed out to them this conversion error, but who knows when they will change the software.

                But the FK did not run the 4x400, just his brother on anchor, but he could not catch the Baylor anchor.

                    She's redshirting, but how about that 212-3 discus from Valarie Allman? Holy cow, that was great. She's having an awesome year.

                      Coincidentally, the previous CL was also run at LSU two weeks ago by USC's Kendall Ellis. Hopefully the Track Gods will give us another good weekend of weather next weekend for the SEC Relays and we'll get some more CL's.

                      EDIT: LSU's women 4x100 ran 43.59 with three members of the 42.14 squad being replaced by substitutes, including two freshmen, Cassondra Hall and Tonea Marshall. That time would have placed 6th in last year's NCAA final and 5th in yesterday's World Relay final. Also of note was Kimberlyn Duncan, who showed signs that she may be back running 22.41+2.2w in the 200.

                        It looks like there were back-to-back 3:39.05/3:39.04 CRs in the Sprint Medley Relay by first Oregon Women then the Texas A&M, then the men did it (both at the SECs after Oregon at Penn). So, three SMR CRs in 15 minutes or less.
