    I would actually argue the opposite. There are far more opportunities for the elite today to compete and achieve medals on a global scale. In the the span of a 10 year career, as well as 3 Olympics,...

    He does that all the time on other Athletic message boards too! You're lucky he's being so polite to you. Usually he'd be calling you names at this point for not agreeing with his made up...

    Surely it's best to use IAAF performance points for the 2 events rather than add times together!
    You are right though, that many of the leading 2 lap runners rarely submit their best performances...

    No, he runs the first 100m stagger, the same stagger as used in a 200m, with his left foot practically on the line. The distance covered on the stagger is based on the presumption an athlete is...

    You're absolutely right! He runs no more than 800m. He also looks very close to running inside his lane on the first bend! Definitely a few strides there with his foot on the line.

    And he gets...

    Yes, I know. You didn't read my account properly. Those splits were hand timed, and the total came to 1:43.5 or 1:43.6 after timing it 3 or 4 times.
    There was no running clock on screen, so only...

    And what happens to the All Time lists per event?
    Do they remove everyone's name from the lists, who set their performance pre 2005?

    It's a ludicrous decision and will lose public support for the...

    Korir was drafted from c. 180m to 410m. He ran perhaps 1m wide at beginning of third bend. No more. Looked pretty flat out on last home straight, but easy on straight approaching the bell.

    You can see Korir's race (filmed by someone in the crowd, I think!) here: -

    Kipketer definitely run those splits. I have the race on dvd. The pacer went through 400m in 51.77, with Kipketer right behind. He was drafted up to 550m, when the pacer went out in lane 2, leaving...

    Is there a link to footage of the race yet?

    As an aside, I thought Eldrick had been banned from this site years ago?

    Thank you gh for taking the time to respond. Much appreciated.
    I tend to agree with you and feel the imperial yards splits are probably the more accurate if it was indeed a 440 yd track, as they'd...

    Thanks to everyone with their info and interesting anecdotes. Much appreciated.
    I have heard that the LA track was newly laid for that meet in 67, but the idea that it was converted to a 400m one is...
  14. 440yd or 400m tracks used in 1960's, US and Europe?

    I have posted the message below on LetsRun, looking for some advice/information. Someone kindly suggested that I'd be more likely to find that on here, where some posters may have had actual...

    Have just been informed by a top US coach posting on LetsRun (JRinaldi) that the results will be annulled. The promoter is writing to each competitor to apologise for error. The stadium has been...

    Blimey! After my initial post and one response, I checked on here everyday for 5 days, with no further responses and what appeared to be little interest! Lol.

    Agreed. He showed what he can do in terms of organisation in London 2012, and he has a strong anti doping stance. I know he wants to go back to 4 year bans, but not sure if that's possible on...

    I don't think Keino's run in Mexico City is any more impressive than Elliott's front running win in Rome on dirt.
    Most agree that altitude assists performances for everyone up to 400m, and Doubell's...

    I would like to apologise to Said88 regarding Aouita's 84 season over 1500m.
    On closer analysis, Aouita did not run mainly in "low key" Italian races. He ran in 2 good races in Italy and also beat...

    Re: Firenze 33 years ago today!

    Thanks for responses so far.
    I don't really know the answer to my first question! Lol.

    Yes, Bob Beamon's LJ is still top 3, but it was aided by altitude and I didn't want to include them.
