Why would Milesplit report results that are short of the actual result as reported in Direct athletics. Ex. A girl high jumps 5'6" , but MS lists that as 5'5.75"?? Long jumpers the same way. I do not know how many results from the meet were doctored down or why? Can someone explain why this would occur?

@cbarnard Possibly these result represent a double conversion. English -> metric -> English again. In that case, a 5-6 high jump could be recorded as 1.67 meters then converted to 5-5.75 inches. If anyone would like to send me meet results directly, I can make sure they get posted as recorded at the meet. versawa@msn.com.
