Absolute Records Broken In 2024

Categories: W = World; A or Am = American; C = Collegiate (NCAA Div. I only); JC = Junior College; J = Junior (U20); Y = Youth (U18); HS = High School.

Codings: + = event not officially recognized by governing body; ‘ = student not eligible to represent the U.S. internationally;  i = mark made indoors; l-a = low-altitude; w-o = women only race; ¶ = conditions for ratification not suitable; # = suspended for positive drug test. Note: unlike T&FN and WA, USATF no longer recognizes the concept of absolute records (no differentiation between marks set indoors or out).
