Running the website for the Tokyo meet (http://goldengrandprix-japan.com/HOME.aspx) through Google Translate it mentions a "Men's 100m supernova appearance! Kiryu vs. Eriguchi"


LOL. The Japanese word or phrase probably meant "superstar".

I would hope so! Supernovas are pretty dangerous stuff. Don't wanna be messing around with that stuff. It could vaporize the whole solar system! :(

^^^see, it's pretty messed up. That would be really bad if it somehow happened at a distance of just 100 meters away from Earth. :(

Not sure if I am "impressed" yet. Let me see him duplicate that time on a different stage with other world class juniors and then, I will be a believer.

He duplicated it, just needs a separate stage (10.01/10.03). May get the stage in the international Japanese meets coming up.

So Ryoto, at the absolute peak of his 2012 OG (at age 20) form ran his OG heat in 10.07, w1.3 (10.14 basic) and his semifinal 10.10, w1.7 (10.18 basic).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athletics_ ... 100_metres

So his 10.04 w2.7 ( 10.18 basic ) here (at 21 years of age) early in the season seems entirely plausible.

Lends credence to the accuracy of the timing (not that there was any question) and we are forced to take the time (10.01 w.9, 10.04 basic) by the 17 year old, Kiryu, quite seriously.

That Japan can produce two 10.0x, one 10.1x two 10.2xs all in the same meet seems to me to be somewhat astounding.

You don't run a 38.07 over 4x1 without some very fast men like Japan did in London.

Those marks from 2012 didn't just break the Japanese youth records; he also broke the world youth records. He's the first man in decades (possibly ever) to concurrently hold the world youth and world junior 100m records. (Darrel Brown held both, but not at the same time).

Seems like the perfect race for the young man to be in following his PR. Would love him to live up to hype and go sub-10, would be great for the sport in that part of the world!

10.01/0.9 ~ 9.95/2.0 (wind-legal) ~ 9.99/1.3 he is not a sub-10 yet because he did not have good enough, yet legal wind. And, it was barely his best of the meet. The question is: is he more likely to go 9.8x this season than to fail to go sub-10?

A couple of interesting things in that link.

Corey Leslie ran a 8:20 3000SC, less than 5 seconds arrears of BIRECH, Jairus Kipchoge 8:15.26 NMR

There was a heck of a close finish in the 200 and some-time board poster Connaughton won the race!! :!: [Congrats, Jared!]

1 CONNAUGHTON, Jared CAN 20.70
2 TAKAHIRA,Shinji 富士通 20.84
3 TAKASE,Kei 富士通 20.87
3 ATKINS,Derrick BAH 20.87
5 SAITO,Hitoshi JUVY-TC 20.88
6 MITCHELL,Manteo USA 20.97
7 HARRIS,Tremaine CAN 20.99
IIZUKA,Shota 中央大 DNS

Bershawn Jackson wins in 49.11 but Plawgo is 7th in 50.98

Y=The 800 had some good (top 3, including Mulder in 1:47.22, a SB?) and mediocre (Prince Mumba in 1:49) results:

1 CHEMUT,Anthony KEN 1:46.51 NMR
2 BIWOTT,Robert KEN 1:46.98
3 MULDER,Tyler USA 1:47.22
4 WARBURTON,Gareth GBR 1:48.11
5 KAWAMOTO,Sho 日本大 1:48.53
6 KUCHINO,Takeshi 富士通 1:48.98
7 MUMBA,Prince ZAM 1:49.27

Finally, there was pretty miserable vaulting, which might mean the conditions were not very good at this meet.

1 YAMAMOTO,Seito 5m50
2 FILIPPOV, Nikita KAZ 5m40
3 OGITA, Hiroki 5m30
4 HOLLIS, Mark USA 5m00
WALLACE, Tyler, SCOTT, Jordan SCOTT, USA and SAWANO,Daichi No Mark

How can you call a time disappointing when the conditions were obviously a major hindrance?

Look at it in this positive light: Mike Rodgers has a PR of 9.85. Kiryu finished 0.21 behind him, so if it were PR-type weather, Kiryu is at 10.06.

The choice of Mike Rodgers for this meet was a good one. A similar sized frame as Kiryu and somewhat of a 100m specialist.

I would not be surprised if the last several hundredths were lost because of either giving up or not handling the pressure and disappointment. It would likely hit a young guy without too much experience on the biggest stage he has ever seen harder than most.

gh I agree this should not be called a major disapointment however to say he was just .21 off Rodgers and thus Mike's PR is 9.85 is a little misleading. Rodgers had arrived barely a day in advance after a 16 hour flight and was no where near his best and shared that in the post race quotes. I actually think you could say Kiryu is more of what he was last year a 10.1ish sprinter. I look forward to his development but not ready to say that 10.01 was all on the up and up.

Kiryu mark unlikely to be ratified as WJR because of wind-gauge specs. Short story posted on front page.

Edion Stadium, venue for the Mikio Oda Memorial Meet on April 29, did not have an ultrasonic wind gauge, which is specified in the IAAF rules as necessary for ratifying records.


Was the ultrasonic wind gauge being used when Brown set his record 10 years ago or when Demps set his 5 years ago?

Ah shiiiit... gibson isn't gonna be too thrilled about this update lol... (nor am I for that matter, and feel pretty pissed off as well, myself) Especially if what batonless relay asked about is the case, which would make it all the more infuriating. That said, rules are rules, and obv if they allowed people to not use equipment that was up to their standards AT THE TIME (i.e. improving over time), and didn't penalize those who didn't spec up to it by not recognizing their stuff when they did stuff without spec'ing up, they would never be able to get everyone to spec up uniformly and have the sport progress technologically. So, I get that it's necessary etc, I'm just bummed out that it had to happen to this kid of all people. Cuz it's like, how awesome would it have been to have a 17 year old asian kid as tied for the WJR. It could've been helpful in getting both more Asians into the sport in general, as well as in diminishing stereotypes that a lot of non-Asians have about Asians when it comes to certain types of athletics. So I am sad that it ended up turning out this way... sigh...

That said, on a brighter note, he still has a lot of time left to break the WJR (all of the rest of this season, and then all of next season as well), so, given that it wasn't exactly an out-of-nowhere performance by him (since he'd already set world youth record marks with like 10.2x a couple times the previous year), I feel there is a good chance that he might even break the WJR, as well as the 10 second barrier, possibly by a significant margin for all we know, before his time as a junior is up.

Probably not, but that's irrelevant. Time marches on and rules change as technology improves. Every time there's a new development, older marks get grandfathered in, which is only the logical thing to do.

As a direct parallel, 90-plus % of the World Records ever set (including a significant number of current ones) were ratified without a drug test. Because tests are now mandatory, would you go back and just arbitrarily wipe most of hte sport's legends off the map?

ps---Demps does not hold a share of the WJR by the way, officially. It's the AJR, but wasn't ratified as WJR because the "zero control operation" wasn't conducted before the meet began. Not required by USATF rules (or at least wasn't then; don't know if it is now), but is required by IAAF.

Another example of evolving rules.

Dont feel bad Kiryu fans, it is not like he set a 100m WR by 3 tenths of a second with a 0 wind reading at the US Trials.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Sta ... d_field%29 US Trials.

Regarding wind readings it seems that the higher the standard in wind speed equipment the more cavalier novice officials have become in making sure the equipment is actually functioning correctly.

Rather than forever adopting the latest wind gauge technolog the governing bodies should instead mandate some redundancy in the technologies. A few disparate measuring methods and more importantly proper, well published maintenance and calibration procedures would go a long way to insure that the officials when there is a good measurement and when there is not.

It is easy to suspect that there have been more false non-wind readings since the advent of the electronic wind gauge than before. At least with the impeller type of gauge any guy with a HS degree could figure out if it was working properly and maintenance consisted of a few drops of oil on a bearing.

It is irrelevant and I just wanted to know for reference and comparison.

As for wiping out world records/best as time marches on...of course not. But, I don't have to be consistent about it...I would remove Radcliffe's "WB".

And in the greatest irony of all, it was Swiss Timing equipment run by a Swiss crew. If you can't trust Swiss Timing, who can you trust?!!!!

(the problem is that it was a new system, and there was a bug that had gone unrealized: indeed, I don't think they ever publicly admitted it; had they, the IAAF would have grounds for decertifying the mark)

Referring to the W100m "WR" ... how in heavens name does a governing body simply rubber stamp the use of new equipment without the old equipment serving as redundant backup ?.. Certainly dispassionate and objective officials did not give cheers of joy at such a decision. I suspect that had they been asked they would have weighed in vocally never to completely supplant the old reliable gear cutting all chords with the past and allowing a packaged pallet of new equipment to be air dropped onto the infield.

Change that is slow and deliberate and never "all-or-nothing" is always safest in these matters. Bring back the impeller wind gauges!!!

My bad.. fell asleep on the posting and was late. Surprised '08 Oly Trials didn't have the most strict wind reading guidelines in place, so if any WR was set there (senior or junior) with applicable wind readings, they would not been counted, as Demps' wasn't?

I don't know. It's possible the zero test was performed at other times in the meet. The Demps mark was set in the quarterfinals, which isn't usually viewed as WR-setting territory. (It's also possible it was never run; I have no data ne way or the other)

i do like video evidence - and i would say the 10.01 was a bit windy.
so the ruling is not so bad. though it sucks a bit the way things panned out.
moving forward, "our man" beat a sub 10 guy in tokyo.
we know kiryu is fast. the intrugue remains.

kiryu has all the time in the world to emulate and better 10.0.
there will be tons of pressure on the kid, but if he's the real deal, he'll deal with it.

we know kiryu is fast. the intrugue remains.

kiryu has all the time in the world to emulate and better 10.0.
there will be tons of pressure on the kid, but if he's the real deal, he'll deal with it.

On what evidence do you think the 10.01 "was a bit windy"? LOL. You can see 0.9 wind, on video, with no flags?

re: looked a bit windy.

the flaggy thingy was blowing at half mast,
but clip boards indicated no wind and
people's hair was not blowing around as well.

so a bit windy it was. not much. a trifle but not a truffle. a smidgen if you will..

I call utter and complete BS. There is no "flaggy thing blowing at half mast" in the entire video of his 10.01 race. At all. It was definitely not "windy".

Why are you making it up? :roll:
