  • How many all time US sub-45"00 quarter milers?

    Bonjour Dan LILOT,
    Knowing that -I am French- in France we have
    had through the ages only one sub-45"00
    performance (the French 400m record is indeed
    a "poor" 44"95...), I wonder, to compare with
    the US quarter milers, how many in history
    until today ran electric regular sub-45"00
    To my opinion, at last 60...
    Where can I find the 100 top US all-time
    400m performers list?
    With all my thanks.
