wind readings at 1952 olympics?

Postby johnclark » Sun Sep 23, 2012 5:15 am

Anyone got ANY wind readings from the Helsinki games? I can't find any on the internet.

The FAT times are pretty easy to find (they look a bit weird though), but not wind readings.

I've never seen any wind readings from the Helsinki men's 100. I believe they were lost and never found which is unbelievable.

For the men's 200, the wind was 1.0. In the 110 hurdles, the wind was reported only as "legal". No official measurement was given.

I think you'll find that the Olympic results in our Archive section have wind readings if any are available.

In general, they don't exist, or we would have them on our sites. Good question, though, I might check with a good source I have at the Sports Library of Finland, who has access to all of the original scoresheets for all sports from 1952, and has helped me a lot.

No wind readings on the original scoresheets per my source in Finland, who went to the Helsinki City Archives to check them out for me. So they do not exist in general, although possibly an isolated reading may show up somewhere. But it would not be official as no of Official Results or Original Scoresheets.
