Betty Heidler's 79.42m Hammer Throw World Record Video

>> May 23, 2011

German's Betty Heidler has broken the Hammer Throw's World record during a local meet in Halle, Germany in May 21. The 2010 European champion who has a personal record of 77.12m before the meet hurled the iron ball at a distance of 79.42m at her third attempt, surpassing Anita Wlodarczyk's World record by more than a metre (78.30m).

Betty Heidler won the gold medal at the 2007 World championship in athletics in Osaka but lost the gold medal in the hands of Anita Wlodarczyk of Poland during the 2009 World championship in her homeland, Berlin. Now, Deagu 2011 will be more exciting!!.

Do you think we'll see someone to break the 80 metres mark soon (in which equivalent to 'breaking 10.00 in 100m', or maybe more)? or during the World championship in athletics in Deagu?

This is a great collection of Usain Bolt's six world records which were established within 15 months. Usain Bolt set the first World record at the century dash in 9.72s at the 2008 Reebok Grand Prix in New York city. About 10 weeks later at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Usain Bolt was not only electrify all people on the planet but turned the fantasy into reality! he shattered three World records in the 100m (9.69s), 200m (19.30s) and 4x100m (37.10s). The Jamaican monster continue to rule the World by winning three gold medals at the 2009 World championship in athletics in Berlin, now smashing his unbelievable World record times at 100m and 200m with the real video game times of 9.58s and 19.19s respectively.

Geoffrey Mutai 2:03:02 The Fastest Marathon Time on Earth, But Not World Record !

>> April 21, 2011

Yes it was an extraordinary performance! Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya has recorded the fastest marathon time of all time when he crosses the Boston Marathon's finishing line at 2:03:02s on April 18, 2011.

However, it's not a world record because Boston is not included  in the IAAF lists of suitable course for recognition of a record. The time is 57 seconds faster than the official world record of 2:03:59 set by Ethiopia's Haile Gebrselassie at Berlin in 2008.

There was speculation that the runners on the course had been aided by a tailwind. But I believe that the main factors that accelerate the race was the "decrease of elevation" between the start and finish. The race starts at 490 feet in elevation and finishes at 10 feet. Thus, Boston Marathon had a net decline in elevation of 480 feet or 104 metres in which obviously over of the permitted elevation of 42 metres or more correctly one metre in a thousand (1m per km).

Start - Finish Elevation of Boston Marathon
One of the interesting facts about the course of Boston Marathon is that the significant drop in elevation at the first 2 km. Well, the runners would start with a gear two speed (of course in control) and less hard work of acceleration is needed!

Boston Marathon was started in 1897 with 18 participants but now attracts 26,895 'qualified' runners.
