Alisa Harvey ZCT-missing 800 mark OK’d by Records Committee

In Orlando, Masters T&F Records chair Jeff Brower submitted a list of 129 “approved” marks for USATF American age-group records. The wider USATF Records Committee signed off on 130. The extra mark? It’s No. 166 — Alisa Harvey’s W50 indoor 800 record of 2:18.14 on February 20, 2016. Jeff listed it as “In Waiting” because of a “missing” zero-control test for the starter’s gun. Maybe it arrived in time, or maybe the Records Committee found a work-around. In any case, congrats to Alisa. (I’ll check with Jeff on how the mark got accepted.)

    130 sounds impressive… wonder what the typical number is every year ….

    It’s generally around that. It looks like a lot, but with 28 age groups (14 each for men and women) and all the indoor and outdoor events (a total of 40 outdoor and 21 indoor event record categories including relays and combined events) it really isn’t that many. It’s less than five per age group.

    “Yes, the issue was resolved before I went to Orlando, i.e., I obtained the ZCT from the timing operator/company. Otherwise, the record would have been on the “Reject” list.”
