Not quite; Yekaterina Kupina ran 1:59.72 on May 26. Still later than May 17, though.

Shanghai points haven't been updated yet, but apart from that I can't see anything unusual; as far as I can tell, yours is the only weird team. Supposing you didn't do anything wrong when you updated...
Ziółkowski threw 83.38 in Edmonton, so 82.76 wouldn't have been a Polish record even without Fajdek's 2014 mark.
Everybody here is blaming the referees :) Especially since after the game against Russia (which had such bad refereeing we got an apology from the IIHF for it) we'd asked not to get two referees from...
Pitkämäki 88.62 WL
Both in the last round... they cut it a bit fine for my comfort :)
For a very short while, I got the site to work, downloaded a PDF and tried to copy the results from that. Unfortunately, all the names were written right to left, with clever extra encoding to make...

In the same meet, LJer Maykel Massó (aged 16 years, 1 day) jumped 812, moving to =3rd on the all-time world youth list. The wind reading seems to have been the same as for Pichardo's jump... ±0.0.

#6 all-time, a new Cuban record (no mean feat in the TJ!), and a new May world best (displacing Beckford's 17.92). Link to story on front page.

I remember trying to lick loose teeth until they dissolved. Unsurprisingly, they tended to fall out first.
Typo, I believe; his previous NR was 65.24. He was a WC finalist in 2009.
Maybe we're seeing the ridiculously-high-Olympic-entry-standard effect here :)

Yup. There are people who divide opinions widely - and people who are stupid and/or ignorant but not trolls (though in some cases, one can but hope for their own sake that I've misjudged them and...

To be fair, most of the world doesn't care about this meet anyway; if the only interested nations are (as booond noted) the US and a couple of islands, the DMR is likely a more sensible choice than...
ARRS has historical marathon year lists going back 100+ years here. According to ARRS's 1955 list Karvonen did lead the world, but with the faster time of 2:21:21.6.
Props to catson52 for...

Randy Barnes supposedly had a foul of 79'2" in practice shortly before his WR.
In a way, I'm relieved if the 24.29 is bogus. Over the years I've had more than one nightmare about the shot put WR...
Kuck reportedly had a monster throw of around 238 feet (72½ m) in javelin practice before the 1926 AAUs. At the time, the US record was his own 214-2 1/8 (65.28 m) and the WR was Lindström's 66.62...
Hearing of Kovacs's 24.29 reminded me of this athlete, who also smashed a WR in practice.
I'm not entirely convinced we're seeing anything in the men's javelin that can't be explained as statistical variation. But if we are, it might be because the more traditional countries are no longer...

Storl is an awesome big meet competitor. Kovacs might be, but he hasn't shown it yet; and while his form right now is very impressive, it wouldn't be the first time a shot putter shows brilliant...
Yes, her coach commented on the race (and how unexpected the time had been, even to him), even posting a video of it.
However, he later said he felt the times from that race were suspect and...

And Watt in 2011.
Windy (+2.6) 12.69 in the w100H for Nooralotta Neziri in Clermont. Her NR from last year is 12.98; after the indoor season it was clear she was in career-best shape, but this was still a surprise...

The same goes for 66.00 in the discus... mind you, I suppose the discus guys at least have the option of hunting winds in obscure village meets.
Quick mid-noughties trivia...
1. In 2007, athlete A topped the mile world list, setting an Area Record that still stands. His other results that year were good but not earth-shattering, placing...
