    187 sub-49s is incredible.

    Edwin Moses (according to the same source) had 123 sub-49 clockings. Moses and Angelo Taylor combined have 189 sub-49s.

    Montsho should also have quite a few; not sure who #2 is.

    Apart from Bubka (noted in the Australian thread), Valerie Adams is somewhere in that ballpark I think. Werner Günthör should also be >80.

    I'd assume there are quite a few such cases around the world. Off the top of my head, Murofushi and Bubka both have that beaten, but the overall #1 in this regard is probably someone a bit more...

    His great tragedy was that he never broke the WR. In 1923 he was in great shape and got really close on multiple occasions before knee problems sidelined him. He wasn't nearly as consistent in 1924...

    I think you have him winning in the wrong Olympics.

    Speaking of Polish-sounding names, I was trying to figure out the accurate spelling for the 1930s Ohio State pole vaulter.

    As far as I could determine, he was born as John Wonsowicz and died as...

    Flack, Lightbody, Sheppard and Kazankina also won that double. (Though Flack, and to a lesser extent Lightbody, didn't have to face the top names of their day.)

    I looked into it a bit more. Barnes's best jumps did come in non-HS meets, but he also exceeded the official HSR in at least one HS meet, the 1924 California state meet; I have no idea why that mark...

    We briefly discussed his marks and their non-ratification a couple years ago in this thread; undoubtedly there are some angles we didn't cover.

    Walk results

    In Dudince, Matej Tóth won the 50K today in 3:34:38, which is a nice improvement on his Slovakian record of 3:36:21 from the Euros last year and #3 all-time behind Diniz and Nizhegorodov. (Some...

    He ran 44.68 in Sasolburg the other day (Sasolburg is one of those dreaded A sites, though). Supposing his DOB is legitimate, he's now #6 on the all-time junior outdoor list.

    On the other hand, no one set a PB in the men's final (one finalist, Mancini, set a PB in the semis), and Schippers's non-Prague best of 7.09 is still a nice improvement on her previous PB. You may...

    Every time athletes are disqualified retrospectively I wonder if we're really doing anything more than taking a medal from one doper and giving it to another doper; and when that happens, there are...

    Hurdles DQ rules

    When was the rule introduced that knocking down at least three hurdles would result in disqualification? I had always sort of assumed it had been around since time immemorial; but today I learned...

    21.7. I think '08 Oly champ Bobby Kerr actually had a better 200m (220y?) PB than Williams.

    I'll have to refrain from answering this, since I've spent too much time looking at birthday lists lately; but are you sure he was born on the 15th? Every source I could find on the internet,...

    Discus thrower Sanna Kämäräinen improved her PB to 61.07 at the Euro winter throwing cup in Portugal, the best throw by a Finn since 1988. (She placed fifth; Nadine Müller won with 65.27.)

    I was thinking of relay WRs; for instance, at the '91 World Champs everyone on the top two teams was a m4x100 WR holder, so that's eight athletes already. (I'm sure that's not even close to the...

    At least to me it was pretty clear that norunner was parodying jamboy and the other Jamaican and American flag wavers here; obnoxious nationalism isn't part of his personality, even if he was no...

    Makes sense; after all, both Ramzi and Kiprop claimed that event in 2008.
