Don’t have much time right now but top 500 times….not a debatable statistic. In fact, I think it may actually be closer to the top 1,000 time ever run over the distance.
Did a quick recount of the all-time top performances just to be fair and I’ve attached a chart with all the sprinters of non-West African descent in the top 1,050. I could have left off 1 or 2 stragglers but I don’t think so. Any way you look at it there’s less than 20 performances (14 by my count) from some one of non- West African descent in the most basic of all sporting events.
