|Subject: ||RE: Will Jarmila Kratochvilova's 800m WR ever be broken?|
I think that at this point, Jeter is FloJo's equal.
Look at their top corrected times, excluding that windy 10.49:
10.61 (1.2) = 10.68
10.62 (1.0) = 10.68
10.70 (1.6) = 10.79
10.64 (1.2) = 10.71
10.67 (-0.1)= 10.66
10.70 (2.0) = 10.81 (*)
10.78 (0.4) = 10.80
10.82 (0.4) = 10.84
(*)-questionable Eugene time, should be thrown out.
FloJo's average top 3 is around 10.72, with 10.68 best
CarJet's average top 3 is also around 10.72, with 10.66 best
Curiously, FloJo doesn't appear on the chart again, which ends at 10.82
It is only that windy 10.49 that sets her apart from CarJet.
Faulty wind gauges happen. It could happen again, but the odds of it happening in an otherwise 10.6x race are very slim indeed.
And I don't see Jeter improving to 10.49 without excessive wind, or DOPING. The wind is unlikely as is the DOPING.
Nobody else is close. Without the wind in Indy, Jeter would be FloJo's equal.
That 10.49 will stand for a LONG time unless a female Bolt comes along. It would be exactly as if Johnson had run a windy 9.67 WR in 1988. Still nobody would have touched it except for Bolt, and then only once.
10.49 is here to stay.
The 200m could go down, though, considering where Jeter already is this season. Good conditioning, good conditions, and a good race could see that record fall this year.
