  • Milestone: Topic #2500

    Who defeated Maurice Greene winning the 60m finals (at USA Indoor Champs) when Greene tied the world record in the semi-finals? Can anyone remember when someone either tied or broke a WR in earlier rounds, but lost in the finals?

    Giuseppe Gentile seems to qualify, having set world records in the TJ in the '68 Olympics in qualifying and then again in the finals, before finishing third. And, Nelson Prudencio might meet the criteria, but his WR in the same event was in the finals, not an earlier round, which he lost to a later WR jump by Saneyev. I think there were five WRs in that one event.

      Wow! The 68 Summer Olympics must of been monumental with WRs braking left and right.

        '68 Olympic results are horridly skewed; first major cmopetition at high altitude, triple jumpers just learning how to handle modern synthtic surfaces, questionable wind readings left and right. Good fantasyland stuff.

            Tokyo 64, wJT.

            Gorchakova set a WR with the first throw in qualifying - 62.40m.

            3rd in final - 57.06m. 1st: Penas - 60.54m

              I know what you are talking about - Mo ran 6.40 (0.01 short of his WR) in the '99 US Indoor Champs in the semis only to be beaten in the final, due to him stumbling, by Tim Harden (6.44 to Greene's 6.49)
