      "If the IAAF ever does change the hurdles (when they go to new WRs, they might as well tweak as many events as possible so there's a "reason" for change), they should cut it to 100m (like the women) so that the relative speed with/without hurdles would be evident.

      It would blow people away to see just how fast these guys run with brriers in their way"





      There is no way that will ever happen. In fact, several people have been lobbying to increase the distance between the hurdles, while trying to keep the 110m total distance. But that would be cutting it very close.

      Attempting to squeeze 10 hurdles into 100m for men would be absurd at best.

        Don't worry I got it.

        For anyone who's interested.

        Jeff Williams' 200m PR:
        19.87s(Wind: +1.2m/s)
        1st place, Fresno 13th of April 1996

          When I first made that post I assumed people would take it as a given that the number of hurdles would have to be reduced to 9.
