  • Indian Airways Trivia...

    No, no Garry, it is not a spam...
    My question is:
    A 35 years-old Indian record has been beaten
    recently.
    What event was it?

      I suspect you're referring to men's LJ (8.08, the old mark was 8.07), although in fact the old record was a bit under 30 years old...

        Correct, POWELL...
        With such a name, I suppose that trivias about
        long-jump have no secrets for you.

                    Of course everyone knows who finished 1,2, in that Rome race, and we've said here that Singh was 4th, so who was 3, 5, and 6 in this 6 man final ?

                      There was Mal or Mel Spence who led at 200m in 21.5, and another Spence as well, one was South African, the other Jamaican. Maybe the #2 German, Kinder, was 6th?

                        forget "mel and mal", not them, but "Mal " from South Africa was in the top 6 but not 6... he was 3rd. But your're close on Kinder, he was 5th. And 6th was....?

                          the old India long jump record was at 8.07 (the new 8.08) and was achieved by T.C. Yohannan. He was ranked 7th in the world 1974 (by T&FN).

                            just to clarify the Spences, there were THREE of them:

                            There were two brothers, Mel and Mal, from the Caribbean somewhere... ran at Arizona State in 800 and 400. They were NOT in the Rome race.
                            Mal Spence, from South Africa was... he's the one that finished 3rd.
