Or are there any math gurus that can figure out how to measure it using pictures or something?
Conspiracy theorists have to admit it wiould be possible to to make it so the track is about .15 short per 100m. Then you get about .60 for 400. If that's the case, then all of the fast times aren't mind-boggling fast.
So Eaton's 45.00 is really 45.60 (just .04 off his open pb coming in).
So Merritt's 43.65 is really 44.25 (just.11 faster than his previous sb) .
Wayde van Niekerk's 400 becomes 43.98 (just .02 off is 43.96 sb)
Schiffer's massive .40 pb only is a .10 pb.
Bolt's 19.55 is 19.85, etc.
Everything makes much more sense. It even works for the distance races>
Farah's 148.6 close becomes at 1:49.8.
Dibaba's 156.9 becomes a 158.1.
Someone get us a wheel. I'll pay someone to measure the track accurately before the end of worlds and video it.
