Everyone hyped up Boling's 44.7 as if it was a once in a decade performance.
The truth is, it wasn't.
In 2017 NBNO, the anchor for the second place 4x400 team anchored 44.58!
In 2017 Pan Am Juniors, Sean Hooper ran a 44.6 split.
Justin Robinson ran 44.8 on the open so I'm assuming he can run 44.6 ish for a split.
Jamal Walton split 44.5 @Pan Am Juniors
In conclusion, although 44.7 is a very fast split time, it isn't as "godly" as people make it out to be, as 4 other people have ran as fast/faster in just the past 2 years.
There have probably been wayyy more people in all-time US history who have ran faster, but to be honest, I can't be bothered to do that much research.
*This isn't to demean the accomplishments of Boling. 9.98 in HS, wind-aided or not is crazy. I'm fully confident that he will one day win NCAA's and he'll run 9.7 low and win the Olympics. Just this one performance (I felt) was a bit more hyped up than need be.
