            Good guesses, however the one I'm after was on the track at an NCAA championships.

              well it was not "on the track" and it may not have been a retroactive revocation, but Gutowski's 15' 9 3/4" PV ( 1957 I think) deserves mention. Never accepted as his pole went under the bar I think... although the vault counted. Go figure.

                Well, Johnson and Klobukowska are both correct answers to the original question. You shouldn't change the question after it's been answered :-P

                I believe Dora Ratjen's HJ record was also ratified before it was discovered she wasn't really a woman and annulled...

                  Did this happen to Roddie Haley in the men's 500 y(or some other obscure distance) in the mid '80s. What an incredible talent he was. I think he went to jail on drug charges (buying or selling or something). Correct me if I'm wrong.
                  P.S. I could look all this up on my own, but my wife threw away all my T&FN pre 1998 (which went back to the '80s). If I didn't love her so much I'd.....................

                    You're wrong.

                    I have much too much track stuff around the house but fortunately, my wife knows perfectly well that I don't love her so much. :-)

                          Did it happen to Evelyn Ashford during an indoor 50m or 60m race...?

                            Here are some more clues: It happened in a sprint race during an Olympic year at the NCAA championships. Name the man, the event, the year, his time, and the reason the IAAF wouldn't accept his record.

                              Well, it wasn't an Olympic year, but in 1994 Tim Montgomery set the World Junior Record of 9.96 in the 100 meters at the Community College Championships. The record was later disallowed when it was discovered that the track (100m straightaway) was 3.7 meters short.
