Especially for the 200m. It’s almost laughable. I suppose if set up appropriately they can accurately rule out a wind illegal mark but they can’t likely determine if a mark is wind legal.
Anyway, since everyyyyone supposedly does short to long, what’s with all these 45sec runs by the top 100m guys?
I can’t determine the level of sarcasm here so I’ll take the risk of assuming your being serious….I didn’t think Gay is on short-to-long. His program is modeled after John Smith’s now isn’t it? If so, that’s more like long to short.
And what was the wind for Gay’s 400? Did they use my new hat wind gauge which is a modified spelunking helmet?
Yes I believe they did. Unfortunately despite IAAF approval your patent was not approved and they are now readily available for all to wear.
