How many all time US sub-45"00 quarter milers?

Postby Guest » Thu Jun 05, 2003 12:18 pm

Bonjour Dan LILOT,
Knowing that -I am French- in France we have
had through the ages only one sub-45"00
performance (the French 400m record is indeed
a "poor" 44"95...), I wonder, to compare with
the US quarter milers, how many in history
until today ran electric regular sub-45"00
400m.
To my opinion, at last 60...
Where can I find the 100 top US all-time
400m performers list?
With all my thanks.
