    Of course you probably already knew that.
    I think pela is listing the 19.9 as a conversion from 20.0y, though the notation isn't quite obvious; and it's a bit confusing to show it as a converted "19.9y" while also showing Smith's 19.5 as a non-converted 19.5y. (Smith was officially timed in 19.5 for both 200m and 220y, which is presumably the reason for that oddity.)

    And there are many marks before 1960 without wind readings but I only started looking at that date as I doubt we'll find many earlier marks, except Olympics and those we have already.
