    uh guys,, we've somehow gotten miles away from the topic of this thread... Nesta Carter didn't belong in it in the first place

    Thinking Robinson simply couldn't take and give a baton having ran anchor all his life.

    Tinker was going to be there, it was bringing in Larry Black to take his place.

    How about....

    Gerald Tinker...Robert Taylor...Eddie Hart...Rey Robinson

    Jamaica's Olympic and world championship medallist Nesta Carter, whose positive doping test caused Usain Bolt to be stripped of his Beijing 2008 Olympic 4x100 metres relay gold, has tested positive again and faces an anti-doping hearing next week.

    I know you know your stuff. Seems like an odd one to draw a blank on,considering he was the first, and still the only, Chinese male Olympic T&F gold medalist.
    Thanks, for some reason I just completely skipped over 2004 as a whole (which also saw Xing Huina win 10000m gold)

    That medal goes down the drain. Down to 5 for the UK.

    First time I've seen CG's video and I cringed thru the whole thing. He does ultimately take responsibility for not driving through the finish and not leaning, but the whole thing makes me question the USA's commitment to the 4x1. There are many HS teams that pass better and know how to finish a leg. This is completely unsat.

    Fascinating! From the shot taken near the 100m start, the US seems to have only 1 team beat when Gillespie gets the stick.
    Who were the relay coaches that he mentioned? He mentioned 1 that did not make the trip to Tokyo, another 1 that the relay team practiced with at first, and then still another coach that they did the final practice with.
    US had two teams beat: Turkey, which was already out of it, and Ghana. A couple of others were essentially even

    Fifth place in a fast enough time would advance. So all Gillespie had to do was pass one team and stay ahead of Ghana.

    He passed Netherlands but got passed by the Ghana anchor, Joseph Amoah, who has a 10.01 PB.

    Lyles or Bednarek would have advanced the team. One of them should have anchored.

    Also, usually there are splits available for the 4 x 100 even if they are revised later. I checked PJ Vazel's twitter as he is usually a good source and found no splits. Anyone?

    Because the winning 4x1 team from NCAAs had a non-American on it and would have been DFL by about 3-4m with their season best time.

    [/QUO
    Come on man it wasn't obvious I was talking in the future?

    Bottom line is what chance would a well oiled NCAA team stand vs four faster sprinters?
