Uh, in response to the above, I think the requirement that EVERY microsecond of an event be seen in order for it to "count," is just a tad extreme. There is the need to look at the program and write split times, after all!

Completely agree!!

If that was the ruling, then no-one could claim to having watched a full marathon (unless, of course, they were competing in it or were one of the camera men!)

How many HS sub 4s?

Postby MJD » Tue Jan 06, 2004 3:38 am

Basically out of this one. Best performances I would have seen live would have been Worlds indoors in 93 and(believe it or not) a bunch of pretty good efforts at a few meets in Tillsonburg. Couldn't give you the marks though. I "saw" Rod Dixon's 83 NY marathon race(kind of) and Grete's for that matter.

Don't know whether it was the fastest mile I have ever seen but watching Sully break 4 as a high schooler was the most exciting. There have been 7 North Americans do it and let's not get into the discussion about the extra year of high school up here right now. I suspect that no one has seen all 3 Canucks because they were done on both coasts and Ontario but I will find out. Has anyone seen all 4 yanks do it?

Spectators PRs

Postby Conor Dary » Tue Jan 06, 2004 12:21 pm

On a related note, while not a record run, I did see Pre's last race. I had just moved to Eugene four days before, and it was the only time I saw Pre in person. Fortunately, not everyone I see for the first time dies the next day.

A Canadian who claims to be a real fan who didn't even go to Edmonton in 2001? Typical Trawnna behaviour, believing that Canada doesn't extend west of Lake Ontario.

Actually with you on the Trawnna thing and I'm only an hour away. During the summer's power outage, they thought they should have priority access to power because they were so crucial. Only a couple of people actually work there. The rest are on some kind of government payroll-no offence Michael.

DJ, I don't know (about binking), you have to ask Tom. It is hard for field events if you don't have a bunch of people around. Back in the good old days, I had a crowd which would alert when some (supposidly) good performer was up in a field event (we assigned events). Now it is just Mary & I, and we sometimes miss things. But not at "big" meets. I guess that is not really true, as the only Weltkasse meets we have been to, we were solo. I do think, that for an amateur fan (defined as someone who doesn't work for a track publication, write as a track expert for a newpaper or announce at meets) I have a decent PR list. Actually, I would like to hit the rest of the WCs as long as I live, but who knows? I know I will never attend another Olympics, but thats an economic descision. Oh, DJ, this is not a whack at you. Mary & I want to hit Penn Relays at some future date. Jack says it is a hoot, and there are a lot of things to do in the area.

Took me a while to figure out how a thread with a last post of january 9 made it back to the top of the queue, but I see that the initiator went back and updated his PRs. But tandfman may have made a mistake because he lists Isinbayeva's 4.91 as his wPV PR so he must have been in Athens, but he doesn't list Menéndez's 71.53 in the JT. Maybe he's scrupulously honest and was out taking a pee so he doesn't list it?

Those two marks were the only PRs I got all year. I guess I must not have made much fun at the Olympics after all :-)

The funny thing is that when I first did this off the top of my head, I thought I had three new PR's this year, and then when I went down the WL list, I must have just missed that one. Oh, well, back to re-edit.

Why be sorry? You saw a record no one else in the history of this board will ever see! My spectator PB:s are not even in the same universe as that one! Your name will live on for ages to come :)

Women
100 10.49 OT '88 (okay, my PR is probably 10.61)
200 21.74 WC '87
400 47.99 WC '83
800 1:54.44 W Cup '89
1500 3:57.12 US-Nord '83

DT 73.04 E Cup '89
JT 69.73 WC '01
Hep 7215 OT '88

My wife Mary has been to most of the big meets with me. We met in '75, when I was just getting reinterested in the sport. I have the Bank's TJ and she has 2 17.92s WCs '87, '01. She has me at the HT, with an Astapkovich 84.12 @ GWG '90. I had tickets, but was up to my butt at work, so gave them to the Hubbards. Of course, I was laid off early the next year, so working hard really paid off. I did get a pretty good severance. :-).

Edited to add w relays and numerous error in WC dates.

Yeah, Kravets jumped pretty well! How does that compare with your (gh) pr in actually doing the jumping? This isn't being snide, just curious.

I used to keep a top-10 list of my PBS ("Personal Bests Seen")--talk about nerdly! I've let it lapse in recent years. The following is incomplete, but is what I can remember right now:

Men
100: 9.87 (and 9.78w)
400: 43.68
800: 1:41.24 (and 1:42.20, 1:42.47, 1:42.55, etc.)
1500: 3:26.12 (and 3:26.45, 3:26.89, 3:27.21, etc.)
mile: 3:45.19 (I think I've got the 100ths correct)
3000: 7:25.16 (and 7:25.54, 7:26.02, etc.)
Steeple: 7:55.28 (and "7:53.17", 7:58.50, 7:58.98, 7:59.08, 7:59.18, etc.)
5000: 12:39.74 (and 12:41.86, 12:44.39, etc.)
10,000: 26:27.85 (and 26:52.23)

Women:
100: 10.49 (or "10.49"?)
200: 21.66
400: 48.92
800: 1:55.19
mile: 4:12.56
3000: 8:21.64 (at the time, an unacknowledged WR)

This was mine, with one addition, posted above (for some reason) under "Guest." I only saw one big meet in '05 and it was wet & windy, so only one to add for '05...

What is wrong with me? (Or, alternatively, what is wrong with the rest of you?!?!?) I've never tried to keep track of any of the marks I've seen. I guess I could go back through the list of meets I've been to and try to track down marks, but I think I'll pass.

That said, I do remember one or two. I'm guessing I saw the same 9.78w that kuha did - Mo Green at the 2003 Payton Jordan meet at Stanford.

"I've never tried to keep track of any of the marks I've seen."

I'm shocked, stunned, and gravely disappointed. I know that there are therapies and support groups for this kind of malady. :shock: :arrow: :D

Re: the 9.78w, I was thinking of Lewis at the '88 Oly Trials...I hope I have the time right...

If I end up in therapy, there are plenty of things for me to get worked out before we get to this issue. :D

My guess was based on - how many 9.78w races could there be? I guess the answer is at least two.

My memory is fuzzy, but I believe that the fastest HS mile and 2 mile races I've ever seen were within an hour of each other and by the same athlete: Craig Virgin in 1973: 4:08.5 and 8:48.6. I remember how exciting it was to see a 4:10.8 mile in the 1970 Connecticut HS championships (by Jim Euell, on a very loose track).

Second best one-day schoolboy double ever, behind Rich Kimball's 1974 CA State Meet 8.46.6 and 4:06.6, run within about 70 minutes of each other. (Which I did not see.)
