    Is the compiler an historical researcher? That isn't obvious...

    For example....the 100y for 1913...

    Just a list. ..forgetting whether it is comprehensive...which is a huge project on its own...what do these times mean..... how can you even compare them..from results all over the country..timing was all over the place back then....and then track measurements...which of these are legit...

    No disrespect to the sources you think are better researched, but they have the exact same problems you impute to this site.

    Agree that this is the most important point. If the year lists are not his work, he should credit/cite the original source or compiler, as is done on the championships and record progression pages. Had the year list page credited the Quercetani/Magnusson volumes, doubt would be removed.
