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