as of August 16, 2020
(updated by Jim Rorick)

THE 3 SPRINT EVENTS for women as scored on the WA (formerly IAAF) Tables. Altitude-aided marks—designated with an (A)—and indoor marks are included, wind-aided times are not. An addendum at the bottom gives the best low-altitude marks for those with better high-altitude performances.

Thanks to those who have posted and e-mailed amendments; more are always welcome.
