    I remember somebody in the past who did that exact thing, but specifics are escaping me at the moment.

    If she'd done that in 2007, 2012, or 2015, she'd be the American record holder at the distance, but good run from her. I think she had a much better exchange than Okolo did.

    If she were to do that, she'd be #2 all-time.

    Faster than 47.99? I don't think so.

    Maybe not today. But 4 years ago it would have been a different story, were she to have the competition we see today in the open 400.

    I still say no way. National record, possibly.

    Rest assured, she will be world ranked in the 400m!

    I don't even understand what that means. If you are no. 200 in the world rankings, aren't you "world ranked"?

    to longterm readers of T&FN (and that is this site, obviously), "World Rankings" refers to the T&FN Rankings.

    we've never used the terminology of "rankings" for yearly lists.

    It's hard to see how Felix gets anywhere near the T&FN rankings this year, though. Next year is another matter.
