Ostrava IWC — A 300 Record Of Sorts For Miller-Uibo

OSTRAVA, CZECH REPUBLIC, June 20—Shaunae Miller-Uibo crushed the world 300 best (or did she?) to highlight perhaps the best of the IAAF World Challenge meets, the Golden Spike. The Olympic 400 champ from the Bahamas got out fast and was never challenged en route to a 34.41. She quipped on Instagram, “Can we make the 300m an Olympic race?”

But the discussion over the fastest-ever in an event not recognized by the IAAF is still not completely resolved, as Marita Koch split a hand-timed 34.1 en route to her 47.60 WR in the 400 at the ’85 World Cup. SMU’s time is the fastest ever with auto-timing and the fastest ever in a pure 300. The previous best in such a race was Ana Guevara’s altitude-aided 35.50 from ’03. There were 3 faster en route splits than the Mexican’s “record” 35.00 by Marie-José Pérec in the ’91 World Champs and 35.06 by Jarmila Kratochvílová and 35.24 by Tat’ána Kocembová at the ’83 Worlds.

Heavy rain delayed the start of the men’s 200, but even so, the matchup between Andre De Grasse and Christian Coleman was consequential. The American, in his first 200 since the ’17 season, got out well and had a solid lead coming off the turn. But he started to tie up in the last 50. In the final strides, De Grasse caught him for the win, 19.91–19.97. It was the Canadian’s first wind-legal sub-20 since the Olympic semis in ’16. “Can’t complain,” tweeted Coleman. “So many things to fix. Back to the lab!”

Earlier, in the 100, it was Mike Rodgers who topped De Grasse, 10.04–10.05, with China’s Zhenye Xie at 10.06. Just for fun, times were also taken at 100y, with Rodgers and Xie both at 9.28 ahead of De Grasse’s 9.30.

On the field—before the rain hit—Mariya Lasitskene showed up at her best, tying her PR of 6-9 (2.06) with a beautiful second-attempt clearance that left the bar faintly quivering. The normally taciturn Russian actually followed up with a smile. She then gave it three goes at a WR 6-10¾ (2.10).

Javelin thrower Magnus Kirt delivered the best throw of his life, an Estonian Record 296-5 (90.34) that was more than 20-feet past anything else he or his competitors threw. In the vault, Sam Kendricks got his sixth straight win at 19-5½ (5.93). Kiwi Tom Walsh took the shot at 73-¾ (22.27).
