    29 minutes between the start of the women's and men's 4x4 and no other track or field action at all going on.

    Pretoria is at 1339m altitude.
    Big improvements not uncommon if you're just 20.
    No.2 and 3 in same heat (20.52, 20.55) at around their pb (20.51, 20.63).
    Does not raise my suspicion.
