    And hopefully you'll see it soon on the T&F News website historical results when the Women's AAU/TAC results for 1923-85 are put up on the site - per EGH, I think it is close to happening. DJ and I did this together a couple years ago, with some proofing assistance from John Brant.

      Compared to the 4x800 at the time rather soft. Still a WR is a WR...

        True, well short of the 4x800 record at the time. But quite good for anything other than a national team, as all the superior records were.

          Indeed a great time for 1975 for a club or university. Even these days it would be fine performance.

          But still a huge difference for basically the same event.

            Also a large difference in the WR 4x440 and 4x400 for women in those days but not quite so dramatic.

              I would still consider that unlikely. As great as Zelezny was, for as long as he was, his 98.48 was still some 3 meters farther than his second best mark. Vetter has already got his outlier mark, and I would bet against him getting another one.
