  • 1983 Helsinki double: Jarmila Kratochvílová

    I was just wondering if anyone could shed some light on the scheduling of the 800m and 400m heats and/or semis at the First World Championships.

    Looking at the IAAF toplist I can see that JK ran the 400m final in 47.99 on 10/8/83 and 1.54.68 in the 800m final the previous day.

    Presumably there were rounds to run???

      I have the 1983 Official Results but it also does not contain any times, only dates. Strange,

        those 52s and 51s were like training runs. It doesn't seem as if she had to do much besides the finals.

          I don't know the complete timetable, but according to the WCh stats handbook, on 9 August she started the 800 final exactly 33 minutes 27.5 seconds after the finish of the 400 semi.
          Było smaszno, a jaszmije smukwijne...

            That sounds about right.....We were in some kind of awe...

              Semi-official games book says 2007 seconds (=33 minutes 27 seconds), without any mention of the half second. Though since that wasn't really a stat book, the writers may have simply not cared about the half second.

              Scheduled times (as given for heat 1)

              7.8.83 11:55 w800 heats (Kratochvílová in heat 3, the weakest and slowest heat. 2nd place in 2.12.35 behind Schröder)
              7.8.83 18:15 w400 heats (Kratochvílová in heat 1, the fastest and strongest heat - though since practically everybody made it through to round 2, that didn't really matter. 1st place in 52.42)
              8.8.83 11:20 w400 2nd round (Kratochvílová in heat 3, one of the weaker heats, 3rd place in 52.40 behind Payne and Ilieva.)
              8.8.83 19:30 w800 semis (Kratochvílová in semi 1, the slower and slightly weaker semi. 2nd place in 1.59.58 behind Podkopayeva)
              9.8.83 17:35 w400 semis (Kratochvílová in semi 1, the slower and slightly weaker semi. 1st place in 51.08)
              9.8.83 18:10 w800 final (Kratochvílová 1st in 1.54.68, 57.8 400m split)
              10.8.83 17:50 w400 final (Kratochvílová 1st in 47.99 WR, 23.2 200m split)

                Thanks for the input guys..33 minutes between a 51.08 and a 1.54.68 is madness!!!!!

                  She ran the last 200 of the 800 in 27.3, which is fantastic for any woman, but to do it in a fast race after that short period of recovery indicates that 1:53.28 was far from the limit of her potential.

                    Rog. as strange as it sounds, with it being the longest standing record in athletics, I agree with you, in terms of Jarmila the record is SOFT.
