" want to knows"

Postby LSR » Tue Jan 15, 2013 1:48 pm

Ive had a thought to compile a few lists of people who are at either ends of breaking certain barriers in different ways in events. The usual sub 10, sub 20, sub 45 ie ie but i want to know whos lets say the tallest and smallest man to break 10, the youngest to first break the barrier and the oldest to ever break the barrier. the first man to break 10 and the last man to break 10 for the first time.

off hand i would guess lerone clarke is the smallest and usain bolt is the tallest

you see how this works feel free to add your own " want to knows" and events

This wikipedia page has a list of every sub-10 sprinter, including the age and date when they first broke 10 seconds.

Oldest olympic champ: Linford Christie. Also oldest WC winner 1992-1993. Oldest sub 10: Christie or Darvis Patton. Patton was 35 last season and Christie was born in 1960. Can't remember if he ran sub 10 in 1996. He did in 1995 for sure.
Youngest sub 10. Kemar Bailey Cole? Not sure at all.

Linford Christie is the oldest to run sub-10. He ran 9.97 on Sep. 23, 1995, when he was 35 and about 5 months.

Patton just turned 35 in December 2012, and thus was still 34 when he ran his last sub-10.

Youngest Oly champ at m100m should be Reggie Walker, who won in 1908 at age 19.

Correct. That 9.97 tricked my brain into typing 1997.

I'll fix it.

Isn't Michael Frater (170cm/67kg) smaller than Clarke?
