Alltime Best 50 Performances in each event



The lists below were (primarily) compiled from printed results in the Courier Journal and Louisville Times. Because some results were never printed and most were incomplete, it is possible that some performances were not included below. If you can provide any information regarding any performances that are not included below, then please contact me by email.

All times available through the links below are reported as FAT. Handtimes are adjusted by rounding up to the next higher tenth, followed by adding 0.24 seconds to the result (* = converted handtime). An "X" indicates that the time was converted from yards to meters (go here for an explanation on that conversion).
