    Did that one get ratified? And has the "loophole" been closed?

    it's the AR, but statisticians don't put it on American lists.

    What a thrilling competition!!

    I could not believe Sam made 5.97, he was not terribly close on his first two attempts.

    Yep. Thank you NBC Gold! This competition was almost worth the $70 bucks in and of itself.

    USATF records and what the sport's statisticians do are not related.

    You can do what you wish gh, he was the American Record holder period, it was ratified. If you choose to treat as an outlier go ahead, it does not take away the title he held.

    nobody's taking anything away.... since the beginning the sport's stat rules have mandated that you get to represent one country at any point in time, irregardless of citizenship status.

    T&FN has always (as far as I recall) acknowledged the records as recognized by the official bodies who recognize them - and Mondo does appear on the AR listings on the site here. But that doesn't mean that the same marks make sense from a statistical perspective.

    Since he presumably will still live and train here, I wish he were representing the USA, just because we'd have a few more opportunities to see him compete. USATF would be a more fun meet.
