  • Not since Nathan Leeper...

    ...has there been a better name-for-event athlete than Cody Moat, entered in the West regional steeple for Southern Utah. Unless it's pronounced Mow-at, in which case never mind.

          Reminds me that back in the day while playing silly track games at a nationals of some sort we came up with a list of high jumpers who could jump off themselves:

          Dwight Stones
          Tom Woods
          Benn Fields
          Juri Tarmak....

            We cannot find a more premonitory name for the
            best and unequalled all-time high jumper...

                "Rink" Babka in the discus. Still not a good as Leeper.

                    Back in HS in Jersey there was a discus thrower named Mike Hurling (Scotch Palins), and a shot putter named Chuck Spinner (Willingboro).

                        Of course the guy with the least appropriate name is Steve Slowly, the Jamaican sprinter.
