          Hopefully you can read these which I made from Microsoft's "snipping tool'.

            Wow - it sure is some kind of legal world record.

              Now can we do something similar to get Flo-Jo's 10.49 unrecognized as a world record?

                If one clicks the pic, it presents beautifully.

                  Even the WR progression books published by the IAAF/ WA talk about the 10.49 as highly doubtful (and also give an alternative progression of marks without it).

                    That certainly is something from left field....

                    The decision doesn't make a whole lot of sense from those links....maybe they just felt sorry for the guy.

                      Why do you think it does not make sense? All the Court did was confirm that Shinnick got screwed. Justice after 58 years.

                        He might have gotten screwed by someone, but it wasn't the IAAF. The fact is there was no official wind reading for the jump, so the mark could not and should not have been recognized. Estimating the wind from indirect evidence just doesn't meet the record-recognition standards, either in 1963 or now.

                          Exactly .... the decision seems a bit of a farce.

                            What does the first paragraph mean....that wind readings were nice but not necessary?

                              In case those new to these message boards are wondering why this topic strikes a nerve with some posters, there is a long history going back 18 years here, including posts by Shinnick himself.
