Fixed. It was saying that because there are actually two Alberto Juantorenas, the 1976 400-800 one and the LJ 100m one, also from Cuba, who competed in the 2007 WCs. I set the bot to disambiguate that to the 400-800 one now.

Again, you need to get the Footlocker clashes in your database. Williams was 2nd to Davis, with Kennedy 3rd back in '86.[/quote]

TrackBot uses Tilastopaja for the database, and it really only is comprehensive after 1998. Before 1998, it just cherry-picks some important competitions to store. Adding other things like the pre-1998 Footlocker clashes would be a hard problem technically to merge that with Tilas' data.

I'm not going to try that, but I do publish the source code on the site for people to edit: https://habs.sdf.org/trackbot/source.cgi
