RE: Holy Christian Taylor

edwards 2 biggest jumps are his :

1) 18.43 ( +2.4 ) in lille

2) 18.29 ( +1.3 ) in gothenburg

1) this windy 18.43 had 17cm shy = 18.60m

to convert to "basic", we assume a basic 60m of 6.60s as he was alleged fastest tj'er of all-time

to get 6.60s with wind of 2.4 at lille ( villeneuve ), the calculator gives :

6.517s

( that is 6.517 ( + 2.4 ) at 21m altitude = 6.60 basic )

so initial conversion factor is :

6.517 / 6.60

however, the wind/altitude helps twice : once in run-up & 2ndly in jump phases
( wind ( + altitude ) still blowing during phases - it doesn't automatically stop at take-off ! )

therefore factor has to be squared

edwards toe-sand "basic" for his windy 18.60 was

18.60 * ( 6.517 / 6.60 )^2 =

18.14m

2) his 18.29wr had 11cm shy

( not obvious from vid but he stated it in an iaaf article )

-> 18.40 toe-sand

to get 6.60s with wind of 1.3 in gothenburg, the calculator gives :

6.552s

( that is 6.552 ( + 1.3 ) at 0m altitude = 6.60 basic )

edwards toe-sand "basic" for his 18.40wr was

18.40 * ( 6.552 / 6.60 )^2 =

18.14m

this is no trickery

it is just coincindence that edwards 2 best jumps are identical when toe-sand & then wind/altitude adjusted !
