    I believe it has to do with the predominant energy systems for each though I am certainly not a sports scientist. The lactic system though not the sole supplier of energy is important for both. Those...

    When most of the top athletes have run their best they have done so with positive splits (same as 400m) and of course there are many examples of this as already provided.

    Agreed-increasing public awareness and interest in the sport is NOT aided by becoming less relevant/reducing exposure for an entire year. If not an Olympic year there should be a WC held.

    Since DM set a world record under less than ideal conditions it underlines the point even more IMO that she is probably in 49ish condition. WIth better weather that race could have been sub 52.

    Some of these event fields have been very good in terms of the quality of PRs and or SBs coming into the meet.

    Nice finish by Anna Cockrell in the 400mH. She was fourth off of H10 and got up for 2nd.

    Edit: Cockrell 1st as Watson was DQ-ed. Hooking a hurdle? Not sure what the reason was.

    Ice baths are particularly not useful during times of general and specific prep. ("build-up" phases) because they blunt the inflammatory response necessary for adaptation.

    Thanks. Interestingly they have the performance incorrectly noted as having taken place in Alexandria, VA. rather than Alexandria, LA.

    Of course and I never said it was a fact-I was merely looking for the results that had the wind readings. Those were the only results I could easily find!
  12. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I can recall hearing 10.2 for Bubka but assumed since it was only given to the tenth it was also a hand timed performance-if it actually occurred.

    Buddy is 15th on the list but certainly should be higher-possibly #1.
    Probably the greatest soloist as far as pure chops I've heard/seen.

    Bonham was excellent for sure playing with a real emphasis on his single bass drum (bottom up playing) but there are a number of people I'd put over him. Unless I missed him on there I did not see...

    It is interesting that from her height one would expect Bryant to be more of a 60m/100m specialist with a big drop off at 200m but obviously that's not the case.
