    The conversions for an OT (usually about 300m) are the same as for a 200m banked track. I think the a 200m banked track is better for the sprinters and the OTs are better for the distance but they are both quite a bit better than 200 (and smaller) flat tracks. There is also an adjustment for altitude, and two teams qualified for the DMR at nationals because they ran a good DMR at a place with a big conversion. Before they did this about 10% of marks were made at 200bank and OT tracks, which about 90% of the qualifying marks were from these. Big meets are still at the top sites, but more qualifiers come from the flat tracks now.

    Here is a link for the track conversions:

    There isn't a conversion for OTs...
    There is for short and/or flat tracks.

      I guess this was a record after all!

      According to the caption, Josh Kerr appears to have run a pair of 1600m legs. Must be a record for the 5600m DMR!

        Since there are a number of different configurations there are conversions, but they are exactly the same at the 200 Banked. Since there is no absolute reference frame, all configurations have conversion factors to all the others.
