Status of Scarborough Optimists marks

Postby Mighty Favog » Thu Aug 22, 2013 2:25 pm

I'm doing some digging into all-time Canadian marks and the status of marks recorded by members of the Scarborough Optimists (Ben Johnson, Angella Issajenko, Mark McKoy, Desai Williams, Tony Sharpe, and others) are a little hazy for me.

Pela's site says many of those athletes' marks were annulled. It appears that Ben Johnson's '84 bronze medal is still on the books, but his mark from that race does not appear on all-time lists maintained by Athletics Canada. Others from the SOTC do appear on that list but also appear on Pela's list of annulled marks. We have significant disagreement here.

I'm looking for some clarification as to whose marks should appear on all-time lists, and from what time period.
