    Given the wide range of choice we have (male and females atheltes in so many different events that span over a century), I am not surprised that "only" 17 of 50 people voted for the most popular choice. Actually, it was remarkable that over one-third of people picked the same athletes (two of them).
    Right, I wouldn't have been at all surprised if something like 12 votes had been enough to win.

    I didn't have anybody in the top 25, but that wasn't really surprising either As far as I can see I was the only one to pick a walker (Korzeniowski) - I guess MJR didn't participate

      I'd just like to say thank you to everyone for taking part in this and for the most part keeping it civil. Despite attempts at disruption by a few people at the beginning it's actually turned out rather well and certainly kept us entertained over the winter months. It's been informative, educational and extremely stressful.

      There will be another one of these next year with a little more organisation :P i'm open to ideas for subjects

      in a few days i'll begin posting people's individual lists take the opportunity to comment on them if you wish to

      I'll also work out lists by points instead of votes, of male/female, country, event etc, unless someone want to do it for me (please someone do it for me) also an average vote for people with more than 5 votes.
      i deserve extra credit

        I can list them by event (or at least event group) but I don't promise to do anything else :wink:

          mump - what happened to Glenn Hardin? You originally listed him as "Glen Stathardin" and then said he'd appear later with the right name and the right points but he never turned up...

            Here is a list of our favorite favourites. To qualify the athlete needed 5 or more votes. Their points were then divided by the number of votes. The maximum score is 20.

                        Ode to Rafer Johnson:

                        How sad - not a single vote for Rafer Johnson.
                        But, wait, I voted for Rafer Johnson.
                        How sad - a single vote for Rafer Johnson not counted.
                        But, wait, even Santa checks twice.
                        The crowds cry out,
                        Give Rafer his due, a tie for 190th place.
                        He earned no less.

                          And I'm still embarrassed that I was the only voter egotistical enough to vote for him or herself, albeit in 20th place.

                            Don't be! It's good to like yourself!

                            Plus, 6' 5" back in '65 was a great jump!
