*Note: The ratification of Omoregie’s record was delayed by a number of factors, the main one being that his performance was achieved on the same day that Wilhem Belocian ran 7.48 in Val de Reuil and therefore was not submitted for ratification until it was confirmed that Belocian’s performance did not meet the ratification requirements.
