I just witnessed tyson run a 9.79 with a 1.1 wind. Ill post the vid later tonight. He declined to have the results posted. Guess he playin possum.
“Gay’s time improved Steve Mullings’ previous world-leading mark of 9.89secs, also on the same track, which has not been recognised by the IAAF.”
Has the time not be recognized by the IAAF, or is there some issue with the track? I know that some track’s are not up to IAAF specs, but perhaps Mullings’ race had wind/timing issues?
I don’t know. I know the times are always fast here but its not like the cats aren’t running those times at other meets. Kleston ran 9.9 in heat 3 and 9.93 in the final. Wind 1.1. Gay ran in heat 1 prelim with second place in that heat runnin 9.96. Nickel ashmeade.
That’s great! It’s a great prediction for this season. I hope that he’s not peaking too soon (but I really doubt that). Have you got the video yet?
more to come. I was down on the track and my boy recorded. Wish I had it would have been better quality. I will be uploading the other races i recorded soon.
Bledman 9.93 final
B final. I think it was a 10.30 for the win for robin edwards. mike leblanc is also in the race
padget prelim. 10.00
Certainly sounds like a lot more wind out there then +1.1m/s. I’d love to see who is checking the wind guage. Perhaps this is why the earlier meet record wasn’t ratified.
It was a swirling wind. coming from every direction. the first womens heat had a 4.0 wind the the third had a 2. they took about 10 mins between the mens and womens race. It was a middle aged man on the wind gauge. But either way you saw what mullins ran at this meet and then you saw what he ran last week and yesterday.
the track is slightly short its either 98 or 99 meters cant remember
Please provide the source of your mis information. Any facts would be welcomed.
I have no facts, just what I was told from someone. It may very well not be true. Maybe I wiill measure it next weekend as I will be helping out with be helping out with the long jump
Don’t embarrass yourself. I could understand if 11 flat guys went and ran 10.3. U have 9.9 sprinters running 9.9 and 10 flat.
Wouldn’t be the first time a good time was declared null and void due to a short track. I believe Tim Montgomery had a sub-10 time taken from him due to a mis-measured 100m distance.
I dont believe im embarassing myself, I was simply stating what i was told from someone I would consider to be reputable. It could certainly be a bunch of crap, I understand how fast they are. Even if the track was a tiny bit short the times would still be fast. I am not trying to discount anyone’s speed.
I remember that, wasn’t it only like 1inch short also?
Not sure, but nobody wants to ever get caught one-inch short! :o
Pj will be doing an analysis of the gay and the bledman races. Ill post em when I get em.
Can anyone post full results from this competition? Tyson ran 9.79 and a lot of people doubt about this race (trackandfieldnews forum). I bet Tyson will run 9.7+ in New York this Saturday. And the track is short? come on…
