Bo Jackson's 100 meter time

Postby 4:24-miler » Tue Apr 09, 2013 8:51 am

Everywhere on the Internet Bo Jackson's 100m PR was listed. I was looking for details of when and where he ran this time (I believe it was in 1984). Of course I can here to TFN. I did a search through the forums and I really didn't find much but I found two references that Bo's 10.39 time was wind-aided and his best legal time was 10.44 seconds.

my good friend, Wiki, says

100 meters 10.44 Tallahassee, Florida March 17, 1984

mid-March is when the FSU Relays are, so I'll suspect that as the meet.

Odd that wiki states 10.44 seconds as Bo's PR given that Bo's 10.39 second time is all over the Internet.
