Plot of all Fully Electronic Timed 100m times with a mark of 10.30 or faster

So, I made a little experiment and scraped all the official 100m timings that can be found on the official page of World Athletics. Then I plotted all times on a chart for a better visual representation.

I plan to do some further analysis on this data, but I still decided to already share the image just because it’s so cool and because I haven’t found this anywhere else on the internet.

Click on the image to open the full size (it should open in a new tab). It is 12304 x 4625 pixels and 3.91 MB in size.

Data was taken on the 8th of April 2022.
