All-TrackTalk 100m List


#1

Post your 100m time. Specify if your time is handtimed, it will be converted. If you post “4x100 splits” you’re retarded.

TrackTalk 100m List:
11.14c - Zizzyfizzle

10.5 100y = 11.4 100m
11.4h = 11.64c

And how does one factor the indoor (spikeless on wooden floor of 168th St Engineers) to the Class 1 all weather outdoor tracks of today?

must be a tenth or so no?

No wind indoors- but drafty as hell in those years~~ Legal wind of + 2mps gains .10 at sealevel

Ah you’re right. I totally skipped over the “1962” thing haha. Yeah I don’t think you can really accurately convert a 10.5 100y on wood without spikes in a drafty facility to a 100m dash time today xD

I’ll add a 100y list for the classic competitors =P

FWIW- in the 70`s as AT was being introduced-(Auto Time --IMO Fully is redundant) officials still hand timed events as back-up and the crew I worked with in NYC area- Think Millrose/KofC/Oly Invite/Indoor Nats/IC4A were usually with-in a tenth -rarely would the hand be 2 tenths off.
In the 220 that 130 yards or so from the finish line timers to the starter pushed the difference closer to the .24 commonly used today. Remember we were the officials that got invited to do National Champs and International meets not the typical group of volunteer HS officials.
My mentor and HS coach Marty Lewis(The first FootlockerXC Commishioner I believe) said sprint times were best expressed as low, mid, high
So you ran a 23 high 220 or a 10 mid 100… same as a 4:30 miler had to run 4:25 or under to not be classified a 430 miler.

Being picked to be a working official at USNatls is a very high honor in the officials world.
