yes, there are a bunch of nwi marks out there which at this point aren't ready for the legal list.

wind readings +1.5 and +0.4 respectively.
Ceolamar Ways right there with him in the 200, also sub 21 in 20.88.

Strange the way some of the FL regional meets have wind readings, some don't.

Should be one hechuva 3A title meet, with T. Bromell and K. Williams.

Media in Florida are reporting Bromell's mark as legal however I can't find any basis for that at the moment. I'm trying to confirm.

prep = high school.

most graduate at 18 or 19 (if 20, we wouldn't allow them on oour lists)

Not sure if wind was ever posted on T. Bromell's 10.14, but if this is the photo from the race, it appears the little flags on the infield suggest a reasonable tail wind?

In light of the 10.01/0.9 and 10.03/2.7 run by the Japanese "prep" (17) these times do not seem quite as spectacular.

As for those flags; it is hard to tell, as they are being blown at 90 degrees from the race (because that is their 'degree of freedom') so it gives no clear indication and are even consistent with a headwind. Flags like that hanging straight down mover with relatively little wind.

I can't get an answer out of the contacts that I have. As I mentioned, it has been reported as "legal" by various media but these are not track writers who'd ask a question such as "if the mark is legal what was the wind reading?". To them no wind reading probably means not wind aided. Whether the flags are blowing or not means less than having nwi.

Where's Marlow? He may have someone who can get the answer.

If you ever get an answer, please post. It's a great time and would like to know. Just seems strange in such a big FL regional meet there wouldn't be wind indicators.

If American kids had form like that kid, they'd be running nearly as fast.

I do know the timing guy and I'll ask, but I suspect it'll remain NWI. The State meet always has a gauge, but not the District or Region meets. Too many of them and the hosts just don't want the extra expense. Simple as that. If y'all want to start a charitable foundation to provide wind gauges for us, I'm sure we'd be very grateful. As I keep trying to tell the 1600 vs. Mile people and anyone else who wishes to ascribe meaning to us: it's juuuuussssst HS track & field . . .

Your powers are mighty. Can you now contact the media centers where I keep reading it was a legal mark?
:D

Thanks for the help.

This forum is the only 'media center' that matters, so consider them told! :wink:

I emailed one of the offending newspapers and filled them in on the fact that the mark was not "legal" but have yet to get a response. I can only imagine the comments in the press room.
"some track nerd emailed me about the kid's race. Who cares if there was no wind gauge?"

btw...I also got a response to the wind gauge question not long after you posted your response.
