    If 49.95 is the minimum, pregnancy is like steroids. And she'd be at 48.3 next year.

    Maybe the people who are helping him map his future are saying he should not waste his talent and life missing what he's great at because Tom Dick and Harry like football. We can hope.

    It would indeed. If 1500 world leader Timothy Cheruiyot improved his best by 3.3% (like Mondo adding 20cm to his best in one shot) he would run 3:21.61. Or Ilya Ivanyuk, who leads the HJ at 2.33,...

    The same improvements by the women would yield 47.35 for Shaunae, (3.3%) 48.02 for Salwa, (2.1%) and I'll let someone else do the rest of the fantasy for Seyni.

    Women's 400 is ready for history's first race with 3 under 49. 49.05, 49.17, and 49.19 this year and 2 have better PRs. That takes the cake, if you have any historical perspective you know that...

    The world record was set in Seoul in, pardon the cliché, an epic seesaw battle between an American team with 2 Olympic champions running the last 2 legs and a Soviet team that had 2 sub-48 legs. No...

    I thought of taking an average of the top 15 men and women....and it was soon apparent that there was so much variability among differentials that is wouldn't be very informative. So what next? How...

    As I pointed out, people devote different amounts of time to the 2 events, which makes it impossible to compare everyone. Privalova and Gunnell make an interesting contrast. Neither has many data...

    I looked at the top 15 men and women ever and there's no clear pattern, because they didn't devote equal time and effort to doing both events. Pechonkina has a flat personal best slower than her now...

    The question is "might people run faster in the rain?", so what does relative humidity have to do with it? It's the amount of water in the air and the temperature that together determine air...

    I'd swear this sort of reminiscing got shuttled over to a thread titled (loosely) "Elderly farts talking about the good old days...." oh, about 2 years ago.
