200m Records

The 200m has been contested at the Olympics since 1900 for men and 1948 for women.

The event used to be contested at the IAAF World Indoor Championships but was removed after 2004 due to the perceived disadvantage of drawing an inside lane assignment being a bigger factor than talent in determining results.

To be valid for a record, a time must be run with a wind reading of +2.0 or less.

Where Centre records are better performances than National or World records, this likely indicates that the athlete either failed to apply for the record within the application window or was unable to meet the stricter paperwork requirements. More recent records could still be in the processing stage at World or National level.

For 200m, electronic times are required. Some historical times that predate this requirement may be hand-times (h). Where it is not readily evident that a historical hand timed record or electronic time is faster, both will be listed. [I believe any time given with a single decimal is hand timed but unless marked it is not explicitly expressed.]

Note: Athletes move. Wellington records applicable to athletes registered to Wellington at time of performance. Island championship records applicable to athletes registered to that island at time of performance. NZ records applicable to athletes registered appropriately to NZMA at time of performance. Oceania championship records applicable to athletes registered to OMA at time of performance. World records quote national affiliation of athlete at time of performance.
