It does indeed seem very ominoous if Qu and Wang were able to run 3:50.4/3:51.9 when running at such a pace. It indicates their ultimate potential was somewhere closer to 3:47 or thereabouts.
It does seem like they slowed towards the end, especialy when compareing 800-1000 with 1000-1200 splits.
definitely seems like 400m to me though - and I've enver really bought into the short track theory anyway. Just seems to convienient an explanation. The track stewards and omega timing indicate a professionally run operation. I'm always wary when looking at web footage in any case, particularly when it comes to older meets. Maybe a slightly skewed frame-rate or something...
Nevertheless, its very fascinating.
Short track or flawed clock (if every second = 1.05 to 1.1 seconds then it works)...
They were female and they probably took drugs, but they did not split 42 seconds. The whole pack did not split below 44 seconds. Never to break 4 minutes ever again...
