    43.70 WL Fred Kerley

  • #2
    7th fastest performer of all time and an NCAA record under somewhat windy conditions and, of course, running all alone. This is faster than Kirani James has ever run. WOW!

      Wow I was surprised seeing 4 guys under 45 at East prelims, now this is insane! Destroys the NCAA record...

        Damn! Congratulations Mr. Kerley.

        I believe that's the 5th CR for the Aggies this year.

          I forget why Quincy Watts' 43.50 doesn't qualify - because it was in August? . . . he was a pro?

            I think the NCAA counts only the performances up to the NCAA outdoors. Schools and some conferences count any performance done by a student as long as they're not professional.

              Anything after the NCAA season (outdoor champs) cant be an NCAA mark.

                Well, those Jamaicans would have been ten meters down the track at the West Regionals, where the best mark was 43.70 in breezy/windy conditions.

                          Would 43.70 have gotten at least second in every Olympics ever or is it third. Always a medal. And, this was a quarterfinal, albeit one that is two weeks away from the semi/final set so he could go hard.

                          He looked great; he was ahead by not by that much at 150-200 but then kept going while looking smooth and running to the line.

                            The difference between this meet and the SEC Championships is that he ran a sensible 45.95 the day before instead of 44.09. My guess is that if he had controlled his enthusiasm in the SEC heats, he would have run close to 43.70 in the SEC final.

                              I think that he has also worked out how to run it in terms of spreading his effort in the race. I would be interested in his 200 split, but I will guess that it was slower than in his 44.09.
