    Hand timing history

    I noticed in some threads that .14 seconds is added to a hand time to get an approximate FAT. Where did this number come from? In the eras before FAT did hand timers at major meets get some sort of...

    Bob Hayes' 100m potential

    Forgive me if this has been discussed before but I couldn't find any thread. In you opinion how fast could Bob Hayes run 100 meters today given all the advantages of today?

    Re: Why are 400m/800m runners rare?

    Why do 800 runners run the 1500? Why do 1500 runners run the 5,000? Why do 5000 runners run the 10,000? Why do 10,000 runners run the marathon? :wink:

    Re: Why are 400m/800m runners rare?

    Great info dj. How about the women's side? Off hand today Maggie Vessey and Laura Roesler come to mind but their 400m PR's are inferior to their 800m PR's.

    I always wondered what Wilson Kipketer...

    Why are 400m/800m runners rare?

    I was wondering why 400m/800m runners are historically rare? Alberto Juantorena, Jarmila Kratochvílová, and Mal Whitfield come to mind.

    Re: Ashton Eaton.... oh my goodness!

    Did a quick check for the 1500m PR's of the top decathletes since Jenner. Never would have guessed that Jurgen Hingsen would have such a fast PR given his size.

    So Abbey didn't have her usual extra ummphh at the end of the her last collegiate race. Oh well, it's off to the pros for Abbey. I wonder if she signs with New Balance? :)

    It looks like Abbey is NOT doing the 5K/10K double. She's only listed in the 5K.

    It's amazing that Debbie Heald is still at #8 all time. Didn't she run on a tiny, creaky 160y track?

    Any time a non-East African wins a distance race the media automatically has to say it's a "fluke". Ridiculous! Coburn crushed a good field. And I don't buy that the other runners thought Coburn was...

    I was born in 1968 so I never say Ryun in his prime. I did see him run an indoor mile in the early 1980's I believe. Was this mile race at the Milrose Games? I don't remember. Side story. A lady...

    Re: Abbey D'Agostino

    Just guesswork, but she might stick with Coogan.
    If not him, but if she wants to stay in the east, NJ/NY Track Club is a possibility.
    Or Mahon's little group, especially if they stay in Boston.
