As you can see the list is not continous becausesometimes a throw outside a competition was considered as record and sometimesnot. Over the years there was a long discussion how you could achieve aworld record and now it seems to be settled that only competition resultscount.

Furthermore it's interesting to see howthe record changed from Australia to USA and then to Europe (with a shortstay in Australia).

There is up to now (Jan-2001) one personin the 200m list, Manuel Schütz
