But when AF ran that 48.0 split, her 400 PB didn't really reflect her ability. At that point, she hadn't run the distance much. Hołub, OTOH, is a regular 400 specialist, so it's more surprising that...

Erin Donohue was a javelin thrower in college IIRC, then went on to become a 1:59/4:03 runner.

Even if tis so, splitting 1.7 under your individual PR can't be a common occurence.

I don't think anybody ever suggested Schippers is close to being the best in the world in the 100. If you're going to pick on anyone in this race, it should be Ahye, presumably a 10.85 runner this...
But that definitely wasn't Fajdek at 100%. He placed third in the end, way down on his recent form.
Fajdek injured his back while training yesterday, so he's probably no longer the favorite :-/
On the other hand, I would guess a chance of a $30k payday is pretty strong motivation for all T&F athletes save for a handful of superstars.
It's not just Bubka; the time limit often isn't strictly adhered to in invitational meets, especially if an athlete is the only one left in the competition.
Re Schult's record, I think it was more a matter of abnormal wind conditions than anything else. His second best throw was nearly 4 meters below his WR, and that was his only other 70+. Alekna and...
You mean you were actually retyping the whole post instead of doing copy-paste??? o_O
Kerron Clement is the bext best after Taylor, with 47.24 and 44.48. Harald Schmid would be the best European with 47.48 and 44.92.
That was a different Barshim (Mutaz's baby brother)

Ten Polish athletes will be part of Team Europe in the Continental Cup:
800 Adam Kszczot
3000SC Krystian Zalewski
Missing Euro champions include Gemili, Farah, Harting, Moeldner and Beitia.
I believe Barshim could still be the no. 1 ranked HJer of the year, and he doesn't need a WR to do that. He's 2-3 vs Bondarenko, has 3 competitions at 2.40 and above (the same number as Bon) and won...

That's what it looked like in 2011, when three young Poles (aged 22, 23 and 24) took 1st, 4th and 7th at the WC, but since then Michalski has regressed, Didenkow disappered completely, and...

No, it's the inclusion of Bannister that makes it a joke. If it was a list of best known or most hyped moments in sports, fine, but the 2nd greatest athletic achievement of all time? Gimme a break.
