1.8m cones means he had to run 10 more meters than @1.60m, so the time is even more impressive?

Anyways, we'll repeat the attempt with cones at 1.6m. I'm sure he will make it.

Does it need to be a flat surface? No hill even if modest? All 50 cones records in the pdf were in flat surface?

If you run dual lane races you have to make sure you don't change in the excel tabs (bottom left) the words "qualis" and "elims". We did at some time and then the program assumes a single lane race. Is that the issue?
