9.50 is 1223 but 12.00 in the 110H is only 1249!!!??
Those (the marks I listed above) are NOT the MAX or ULTIMATE marks/point totals for those events??
So, in the year 2000, they (the IAAF) were thinking in terms of a guy running even FASTER than 41.47 in the 400??
I mean, here we are, not even accepting the possibility of Usain BOLT running, say, a 42.50....and here the IAAF is talking about a 400 more than one whole second faster than that!!
Again, just WOW!!
Look at ALL of those marks....the MAX'es listed above.
Which ones do you think MIGHT have even a TINY chance of being reached....say, in the next 50 years??
My choices would be:
9.50....Bolt might get that!! Or Blake?? Or, eventually, Gemelli?? Or that Japanese kid??
3:22.23...Rudisha, maybe?? That's a 67.41 500 pace, or a 1000 in 2:14.82. I think Rudisha could run a sub-2:10 eventually, or right at 2:10 or 2:10.20. So a 2:14 would be a relative cruise for him. Could he finish at the same pace??
23.99.....The only putter around who MIGHT have a chance at this mark is Jacko Gill.
1:51.71...I'm one of those who believe Kratochvilova's WR should have ALREADY been broken!! Take a 49 or even a 50.0 400 woman, and train her for the 800. If she went out in 54 (5 or 4 seconds slower than her 400 PR), she'd be pretty much cruising. Attach a 56 or 57 last lap, and VOILA, she's run 1:51!!
