Not to take anything away from the amazing performance of 27 year old Barakat Al Harthi of Oman. But the question is. For statisticians.

Is this 60m Time at Asian Beach Games legit?

Barakat Al Harthi (Oman) ran an incredible time of 6.44. Which is .05 within the world record of Maurice Greene (USA) 6.39.

The winning time at World Indoors is 6.47 by Trayvon Brommell.

According to Allathletics.com he has a PB of 10.05 in the 100 and 6.67 in the indoor 60m.

1. Is it electronic timing?
2. Was it on dirt or rubberized oval?
3. Was it possibly wind aided as its outdoors?
4. Was the distance of the 60m verified and approved by IAAF or the necessary 3rd party?
5. Is the meet sanctioned by IAAF or just by Olympic Council of Asia

So do we have a new star/beast/freak emerging?, or was one of the above factors playing in favor which cant make this a legit performance?

Well I wish this guy all the best legit or not for this time he clearly has a big future ahead of him in the world of sprints.
