Anyone know of an online historical list for 100yds? I'm specifically looking for the fastest in history under all conditions.
thx.

Thanks for the site. I'd forgotten about that.

Is there a hand timed list anywhere?

The IAAF WR Progression book notes that based on the 10m splits taken in Tokyo at the '91 WC, Carl Lewis passed through the100y point in 9.13.

Were there not splits taken on Mo and Monty's records?

could splits NOT be deduced via electronic replay?

which brings up a question I've asked before and no one has answered (that I know of): the fastest 10m split I've ever seen is .83 (probably Lewis in the '91 race). Is that the fastest man has ever run? That's 26.95 mph (if my algebra skills held up).

can't lay my hands on it, but have seen somewhere that Bailey had a faster split in Atlanta.

I don't know how much I trust it, but this site:
http://run-down.com/statistics/100m_top_splits.php
claims a 0.82 for Greene in 2000 (that's all the information it gives) which would be 27.28mph

Unless splits are recorded with either high-speed video equipment (i.e. 100Hz or better) or laser devices (LAVEG), then they're notoriously unreliable. I have a few splits posted to my website:

I've never seen a 0.82 split for Greene (or anyone else).

When I want to blow my students' minds, I measure off the LJ WR, or the SP WR, or tell them that great sprinters top out at 26-27 mph and could get pulled over in a school zone . . .

Even though it's for a very short time, it's amazing to think that these guys run that fast. For comparison, the Tour de France record speed for an individual time trial is 33.9 mph (by Greg Lemond in 1989).

Legend has it that Hal Davis ran a 9.1 in Fresno in the early 40.s. The world record at the time was 9.4. The timers just couldn't believe it so thay gave him a 9.4 instead.

A "legal" 9.1 would't be ran until about 20 years later when Bullet Bob turned the trick.
