From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

World youth bests in the sport of athletics are the best marks set in competition by athletes aged 17 or younger throughout the entire calendar year of the performance. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) maintains an official list for such performances, but only in a specific list of outdoor events.[note 1] All other records, including all indoor records, shown on this list are tracked by statisticians not officially sanctioned by the world governing body.

IMO, 83.8 is higher than 76.2 and should qualify as having cleared (more than) 76.2. But this is the IAAF who makes the final decision
