Default Women's World Sprint Record - Twice!

Tianshi Zhong[10.573] & Jinjie Gong[10.642] have broken the 200m record at the World Cup being held at Aguascalientes. Kaarlie McCulloch[10.663] qualified third. Can anyone confirm whether she has broken the Australian record?. Miriam Welte[11.053] was on hand to watch her record being broken.

The Aguascalientes velodrome is 250m indoor situated at 1880m above sea level.

Yes Anna's bests were 10.769 in Cottbus, Germany and
10.782 in Melbourne, both last year.

A number of national records went, yesterday.
The first 10 all went sub 11 seconds; some of them pretty inexperienced.
Zhong, (prime example) then got knocked out in the first round proper.
McCullough lost to Lee (the WC leader) in 2
Gong beat Guerra in 2 in the final.

I reckon altitude and conditions worth around half a second.
That's huge.
Born out by NZ team sprinters producing an almost dead 43".

Thanks. Peter Lewis[9.747] has taken the Australian men's record. Fastest qualifier Juan Peralta Gascon[9.633] came close to the world record.

Hope they keep the WC there and put the kilo on the program.

LOL. 27 men go sub 10 seconds in qualifying.
Top 16 all sub 9.8"
Hardly a "big" name amongst them.

That's why I said, "hardly".
Other than him, the eventual winner, Denis Dmitriev,
probably best known of the rest.

That's not to say that I don't know quite a number of them.

Aguascalientes is only 20 to 50 feet higher in elevation
than Colorado Springs USA. The COS veledrome, while
an outdoor 333 has the potential to be very fast. Last
June at the US Grand Prix of Sprinting where Welte set
the previous women's flying 200 WR, in the men's event
the only four international riders in the field went 9.652
(Forstemann), 9.670 (Nimke), 9.749 (Enders), and 9.775
(Phillips). Sireau's WR is from a 333 track, although it is
configured differently and wider (i.e. higher banking) than
COS, and of course it is indoor and timber, not concrete
like COS. Tianshi Zhong, the new women's WR holder is
a former World Junior 500 champion.

Default world records

Just remember it only counts if you are the only one to break a world record on that particular calendar day. So, in reality only one will get official credit for breaking the world record. (but I understand what you are saying as well.)

Cycling News have ignored the world record-too busy I suppose with the Lance soap opera. Any chance SBS will have some coverage?
