    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.

    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.
  10. Pichardo 17.94 [58-10¼] [59-3/18.06 in Doha]

    #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 :)

    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.

    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...

    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...
