Kennedy All Time Top 10 List

These results were obtained by examining many years of microfilm of the Windsor Star and its predecessors. In many cases only a first place time or distance was given, therefore a great time or distance might of occurred by a Kennedian but was not listed. This list is the best I could come up with (I spent 2 summers establishing this)and I would consider this to be 90% accurate. Note that many of these times were for longer distances than stated. For example the old 400m times (switched to metric distances around 1977) are actually for 440 yards which is roughly 2m longer than the 400m. I have taken all the hand times and converted them to their corresponding electric times by adding 0.24 seconds for any race 400m or less and adding 0.18 seconds for anything hand timed over 400m. Hope this gives you something to shoot for. Click here for Kennedy All Time Top 10 Page
