That would have been the U.S. and WR in the 100m throughout the entire 1980s and '90s.
The entire list was made to impress 15 year old NFL fans.
That Willie Gault 9.8 was hand-timed, so, yeah. Who knows what it really was?
He did break the 10 second barrier with an automatic-timed 9.95 (with the wind) around the same time Calvin Smith did his 9.93, though. That's noteworthy enough to make me wonder why the author bothered putting the hand time in there.
