    don't have a specific figure for the track yet, but the city itself is generally listed as 1000m altitude, which helps explain a drop from a PR of 44.83 a couple of weeks back.

    That results sheet lists his year of birth as 1985.
    But my Athletics Annual 2014 lists his birthdate as September 29, 1986.

    La Chaux-de-Fonds isn't quite that slow. He ran 20.21/45.86 at the same meet last year, mind, so he's clearly better now.

    Using an online tool that uses Google Maps, the points I dropped on the track calculated at an altitude between 999m-1000m. The ATFS annual lists La Chaux-de-Fonds as 997m.

    This could be the best location in the world to get a great sprint or jump mark without the dreaded "A" notation. (Of course, Lubbock, TX, at 988m, is a lot closer for most of us).

    A or no A, the guy is a real talent, and at 26 he may be at his best. I hope he focuses on the 400 and gets under 44sec.

    It was 77 degrees in La Chaux-de-Fonds earlier today and is raining right now. So I would be willing to bet that the humidity was at least 90 percent. Basically, perfect conditions for anything 800m and lower.
