José Marín at Helsinki '83 (so what was his time again...?)

Postby LopenUupunut » Fri Jul 26, 2013 5:37 am

T&FN's Past WC Results feature on the front page gives José MarÍn's time in the 50kW as 3:43:42, which made me wonder about his actual time.

Can anybody here absolutely confirm whether the real time was 3:46:32 (as given by Mark Butler and Ken Nakamura) or 3:46:42 (as given by Tilastopaja, pela2, Juoksija's 1983 games book, etc.)? I found a couple of videos on the Site That Must Not Be Named, but they don't follow him home.

Thanks :)

(yes, I know IAAF also gives 3:43:42. When they did ever get anything right?)
