The above article proves why the devil is in the details. The man ends his piece by comparing a 10.00 race 39 years ago with a wind behind it to a race in 2011 run into almost a 2.0 headwind, saying Borzov would have been competitive. Complete nonsense. Borzov would have been where the other 1970's sprinters would be in the World Championship finals this year - about 8m back. Oh, and the fact that somehow Ben drug-free would have been this amazing sprinter (the drugs stopped him from LIVING UP TO HIS POTENTIAL??) Uhm, Ben could Bench 400+ and Squat into the 700 range. That doesn't happen clean. What did he run when clean again? About 10.0

This is the ridiculous argument Marion still bandies about.

Thanks to fLash for the sub ten details. I and all forgot some of the 28's locations and situations.

The men's 100m dash in the trash can!

Interesting article.........

The men's 100m dash in the trash can!
By Louis Ritchie to TrackAlerts.Com
June 1st, 2015 9:59am


Start of London 2012 Olympics 100m Final featuring the world's best sprinters

As far as Iím concerned, the menís 100 meter dash is going in my trash can!  There are too many super star Track and Field athletes (men and women) that deserve more attention, than whoís who in the menís 100 meter dash!  My focus right now, is going on other stars, like Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards Ross, Machel Cedenio, Ajee Wilson, Jasmine Stowers, Elaine Thompson, Jenna Prandini, and Kirani James etc.

Iím tired of wondering when and where the likes of Usain Bolt, Justin Gatlin, Asafa Powell, Tyson Gay, and a few other sprinters are going to meet. My mind is pretty much made up, that it wonít be until the World Championships in August, that I can expect to see them run against each other anyway, so why continue to write about them in May!

The womenís sprinting and other events have garnished (WRONG WORD USE ďATTRACTEDĒ) more appeal this year, than the menís 100 meter dash!  When Justin Gatlin ran 9.74, was Asafa Powell Tyson Gay or Usain Bolt in the race? (NO)! When Asafa Powell ran 9.84, was Justin Gatlin, Usain Bolt, or Tyson Gay in the race? (NO)! Now Usain Bolt is going to run the 200 meters in Ostrava, is Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay or Asafa Powell in the race? (NO)!  Asafa Powell is going to run the 100 meter dash  in Ostrava, is Usain Bolt, Justin Gatlin or Tyson Gay in the race? (NO)!

But look at the womenís 100 meter dash in Shanghai, when Blessing Okagbare won the race, was Shelly Ann Fraser Pryce, Tori Bowie, Veronica Campbell Brown, and Michelle-Lee Ahye in the race? (Yes)  When Kirani James set the world leading time in the 400 meters, was LaShawn Merritt in the race? (YES)!

This past weekend, at the Prefontaine meet in Eugene, Oregon, Allyson Felix and Sanya Richards Ross clashed over 400 meters!  Now thatís two super star track and field athletes, who seem to be flying under the radar, with so much attention on the menís 100 meter dash this year! Thatís what I love about Allyson Felix, sheís fearless, and doesnít duck anybody! Allyson will take on Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce at her specialty the womenís 100 meter dash, and sheíll take on Sanya Richards Ross, at her specialty, the 400 meter dash!

I think thatís one of the reasons Allyson Felix is the only woman in history to win US national titles in the 100, 200, and 400 meter dash!.

I also think thatís one of several reasons Allyson Felix is so beloved around the track and field community, not only because of her humility, but Allyson volunteered to join PROJECT BELIEVE, along with a few other athletes to take extensive blood and urine tests other than those mandated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)! In military terms, thatís like going above and beyond the call of duty!

From this point on, up to the World Championships, the menís 100 meter dash is in file 13, the trash can! My attention will be solely on all the other super star athletes who are willing to compete against each other, well before the World Championships!

Chronological list of the sub-10 club

Chronological list of the sub-10 club
Published 8 June 2015 (JonMulkeen.com)


Marvin Bracy of USA wins Mens 100m as Adam Gemili of GBR pulls up with injury at 2015 Birmingham Grand Prix.

When Adam Gemili clocked 9.97 in the 100m in Birmingham last weekend, there was some confusion over whether or not he became the 100th member of the sub-10-second club.

Some stats sites listed him as the 102nd member, others the 100th, the 101st, the 103rd. You get the picture.

Itís exactly the kind of minutiae that keeps me awake at night, so I had to sort out a chronological list of all sub-10-second performers (based on their first ever such performance) to determine once and for all who is in the club and who is out.

It didnít take long to see the source of the confusion; there were three debatable performances, none of which belong on the list.

Some sites credit Ben Johnson with a 9.95 clocking from the 1986 Goodwill Games (while still discrediting all of his other times achieved while on drugs), but that run came subsequent to his disqualification period and so shouldnít be officially recognised.

Mark Lewis-Francis famously went sub-10 in 2001, but his 9.97 came in a race with a faulty wind gauge and so cannot be included in a list alongside other wind-legal performances.

Phil DeRosier clocked 9.97 in 2012, but with his previous seasonís best being 10.30, it is generally regarded as a doubtful performance.

What this means is that Gemili DID indeed become the official 100th member of the sub-10-second club last weekend in Birmingham.


Richard Thompson one of five T&T athletes in Sub-10 Club that includes
Keston Beldman, Marc Burns, Darrel Brown and the retired Ato Boldon.


So here are all 100 members, in chronological order of their first sub-10 performance. Iíll try to keep this list updated as and when athletes join the sub-10 club.

As can be seen from list above Ato Boldon was the 19th athlete in history to enter the Sub-10 Club when he ran 9.93 in Walnut, USA back in April 1996.
The next T&T athletes to enter the Sub-10 Club were Marc Burns (9.96) and Darrel Brown (9.99) who both ran sub-10 in the same race in Port of Spain back in June 2005 to enter the Sub-10 Club as the 46th and 47th members respectively.
Richard Thompson was the 59th athlete in the world to enter the Sub-10 Club when he ran 9.93 in Auburn, USA back in May 2008.
Keston Bledman was the 78th athlete in the world to enter the Sub-10 Club when he ran 9.93 in Clermont, USA in April 2011.
Since 2011 we have been waiting for some new male T&T sprinters to enter the Sub-10 Club but seem to be going thru a bit of a dry patch so more of our younger male T&T sprinters need to step up.
Our NAAA's need to make some positive moves to address the current dry patch of no new T&T Sub-10 sprinters for the past 4 years.
