Men’s Collegiate Records

Records as ratified by the T&FN Records Committee include only those made by NCAA Division I athletes. No NCAA II/III, NAIA or JUCO performances are included. The end of the collegiate season as defined by T&FN comes with the staging of the NCAA Championships. We do sublist at the end of the page any superior marks made after that date.

Symbols: ‘ after name = not eligible to represent U.S. internationally; (AmCR) = U.S.-eligible (listed when the record is held by a ‘ athlete); (A) = altitude-aided mark—over 1000m of altitude (in affected events only); i = made indoors; p = mark still pending ratification
