    I'll take Trick Questions for $200, Alex.

    Unless there are relays not being run (4x110 yards, 38.6, last set by USC in 1967), then aren't all records theoretically in Jeopardy?

      Only if the category is "Track Tricks"

            Whatever happened to the IAAF's idea, several years ago, of a World Championships in relays? How low could these go?

            4x2
            4x8
            4xMile
            SMR
            DMR
            4x110H

            Wouldn't that make for great spectator fare?

              Well, I expect a few junior records will go down:

              WJ 200m: Usain Bolt, Allyson Felix
              AJ 400m: Sanya Richards
              WJ Indoor Best 200/400: Sanya Richards
              WJ 4x100: US Junior (women)

                The womens 4x100 by the USA with the right team.
                The mens 4x100 by the USA with the right team.
                I think both 4x400 records are safe.
                The collegiate womens 4x100 and 4x400.

                  The women's 4x100, 4x200, and 4x400 are definitely in jeopardy. LSU brings back their entire squad for all three relays, so you know they are loaded and capable. Texas and South Carolina will be a threat to the 4x400 record. I don't see either squad beating LSU in the short-relays.

                    Personally I can't think of anything better than a top notch international relay carnival, particularly involving a 4x200.

                        This is true, but of course, I favor the US girls. With Shalonda, Jessica O., and Kristen Lacy and a few others who can run a good leg, I think we can do it!

                          If i remember correctly they had the sprint med at indoor worlds and made for an interesting mix.............but to have all those relays at a worlds would be extrodinary because u look at the 200 and 800 people have something to tlook forward for whatever reason there individual event bottoms out....and yeah it would look a like a good old fashion sprin carnival just in the summer..........think on it...it could change the face of the world championships

                              I think the person was referring to a WC soley for relays, maybe in an off year, or earlier in the season or something. I heard something about that as well, the event would be soley relays. I think it is a great idea since I am a relay fanatic. It's like an advanced version of the Penn Relays! I would love to see what type of teams each nation would field. I like the thought of the event.

                              If you were the coaches who would you run on your teams?

                              As for me, for the US women. I would use:

                              4x100-Kelli White, Chrystie Gaines, Torri Edwards, Marion Jones
                              Alternates: Inger Miller, Muna Lee

                              4x200-Torri Edwards, Kelli White, Allyson Felix, Michelle Collins
                              Alternates: Inger Miller, Muna Lee

                              4x400-Jearl Miles-Clark, Michelle Collins, Marion Jones, Sanya Richards
                              Alternates: Demetria Washington, Dee Dee Trotter

                              4x800-Jen Toomey, Jearl Miles-Clark, Chantee Earl, Nicole Teter
                              Alernates: Alice Schmidt, Hazel Clark

                              4x1500-Suzy Favor-Hamilton, Nicole Teter, Tiffany McWilliams, Regina Jabobs
                              Alternates: Sara Schwald, Mary Jane Harrelson

                              SMR-Allyson Felix, Muna Lee, Demetria Washington, Jen Toomey
                              Alternates: Latasha Jenkins, Dee Dee Trotter, Hazel Clark

                              DMR-Regina Jacobs, Monique Hennegan, Alice Schmidt, Suzy Favor-Hamilton
                              Alternates: Mary Jane Harrelson, Melisa Barber

                              SHR-Miesha McKelvy, Jenny Adams, Donica Merriman, Gail Devers
                              Alternates: Melissa Morrison, Danielle Carruthers
