    The mark shown in the original post was 4,084 which uses a 14.67 auto time for the hurdles. According to the T&FN report on the meet, because a different 100H section had an auto-timer malfunction, official scoring for the pentathlon was switched to the hand time marks, resulting in the 4,092 in Track Newsletter.

    Actually, somewhat of a moot point. Dana Collins' 4,084/4,092 was supposedly the auto-timed record (per Carey/Davis/Potts) but was far inferior to Jane Frederick's 4,438 hand-timed mark, done in Northridge 7 weeks prior to Collins' performance. Frederick then shattered that with 4,617 3 months later in Sofia, BUL

    You mentioned that you were looking for details of Roth's 5286 in Memphis in March 1981. For what it's worth, this newspaper from that month shows the total as 5277 (in 2nd place) - https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/73306799/

    The total of 5277 is also mentioned by UPI in their report for Drake in April 1981 - https://www.upi.com/Archives/1981/04...1914356763600/
