    >and you are...?


    Hmm... Sister who works in television, poster has moved on to "new life" of singing and acting. Oops, it didn't say that. I think we're supposed to believe this is a retired athlete who in the interests of anonymity we'll just call Carl L. -- no, wait, that's too obvious -- let's call him C. Lewis...

    Re: 1988 100m rematch

    My sister who works in television sent me a message and asked me to set the record straight on this message board about the 1988 100 meter rematch. I have not agreed to and will not run this race for any price. I have never agreed to, or said that I would. I have said this many times to every one that has asked me. However, no matter what I say, the message just doesn’t seem to get out. Again, I would not run this race for ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY. I have a new life, and do not want to look back, and I do not need the money. Enjoy the games this summer, and keep up your support for track and field. The athletes really need and appreciate it.

    Actually, this was the link I meant to post. I was going to put it on the Lindgren thread but would have been replying to myself. This is a way better article and shows just how eccentric the guy is/was(like some think GL is/was):

    "We spent a day with his lawyer discussing the knight," said one official. "Fischer said the horse's nose was too long."

    Kind of like Steve Martin demanding that the letter "M" get removed from the alphabet.

    >fischer and spassky were still elite level players in 1992....

    "Tokyo — Former world chess champion Bobby Fischer, wanted by the United States since 1992 for playing a tournament in Yugoslavia despite
    UN sanctions, has been detained in Japan, clearing the way for his extradition."

    I'm all for this race, for the entertainment. But no money - except from shoe companies, who want to show buyers that their shoes will help age-40+ sprinters to better times. Age 40 record is 10.29 (Troy Douglas,Netherlands,'03) If they beat that, then it's 'newsworthy'. (and forget the 'drugs' factor.) p.s.- age records are fun -and if this race comes off, let's give 'em some props if there is one.

    The talk of Johnson running 10.2 is just that talk, I remember back in 2000 his agent stated he was running 10 flat(ROFLMAO) (yet when he got caught with juice in 93' he still hadn't approached this time), then when reporters timed him he ran 11 flat, which won't even get you into the high school city finals for Toronto. Johnson is just desperate for attention, and rather pathetic. I guess with track he can only embarass himself, if he were a boxer he could fight a young contender and get his brains scrambled.......

    Ya think?

    "Johnson says he'll be running the 100 in about 10.2 seconds this summer, and guys who work out with him say he could break 10 seconds by August."
