  • 9.3?

    What were those old yardies actually running by todays standards? I figure it's like this. Hayes, Hines, Greene and Williams all ran a 9.1 and a 10.03-10.07. Well then I'm guessing it goes like this...

    9.1...10.05
    9.2...10.15
    9.3...10.25
    9.4...10.35
    9.5...10.45
    9.6...10.55

    I'll be the first to confess I'm not into all that conversion stuff as that probably showed. Am I close however?

    The late, great Don Potts always used 0.85 from yards to meters. And then you need to add on the "standard" 0.24 for hand to auto, so you need to add total 1.09 onto the Hayes 9.1, so that becomes a 10.19.

    Clarifying once again just how awesome his Tokyo run was.

      Imagine Hayes in the middle of the track (between Figurola/Jerome) and getting a bad start. Now he's in a run um down mode. A 9.98 in 1964? A 10.06 on a poor dirt track totally un-pushed....wow!

      That sounds good, I'll cheat just a tad and go with..

      9.1..10.15
      9.2..10.25
      9.3..10.35

      Thanx
