    Re: Do you smell a 2:59 in the men's 4x4 final? I DO!

    "There are some real US nationalistic morons on this forum."

    that would be me, of course . . . my point was not a put-down, merely expressing my awe at the strength of these programs. Did not mean to start a world war.

        "I am simply not in favour of people making jingoistic, nationalistic, uneducated and provocative remarks"

        mine were none of those four, so where's the beef?

            >>And to add to this - NZ's 4x100 NR is 39.25, 7 teams ran faster in the HEATS
            >at NCAA! Haha<

            At least New Zealand's 4 x 100 record is faster
            than the US high school record. By a whole half
            of a second.

                  Revisiting the 2:59 and some trivia

                  The UCLA Bruins of the late 80s had some amazing quarter milers on the 4x400 team, Danny Everett and Steve Lewis both won gold medals in the Seoul 4x4, and both have PRs in open 400 that are still in the world top-10 ... the third leg was a guy named Kevin Young, gold medalist '92 and holder of one of the longest standing world records -- the 400H. And the anchor was Henry Thomas, HS prodigy 45.0, 20.9, 10.25 (strangely he was projected as the star of the group but never won Olympic gold)....

                  Now Trivia: Which Olympic gold medalist was an alternate (ran in most heats) on that 4x400 squad?

                      Kevin Robinzine ran in the final and maybe a heat... I know Andrew Valmon was an alternate who ran the heats. Lewis ran all the rounds and the final.

                        I was thinking just individual Olympic champs.
                        Forgot about the relays. I would never figured it
                        out anyway.

                          FWIW--two fastest heat times in meet history are 3:00.60 by Baylor in '95 and 3:00.79 by USC in '92.

                          Baylor ran 3:01.57 to win, USC ran 3:00.58 for 2nd in the final. There will be some tired bodies come Saturday night.

                            Valmon and Robinzine were not Bruins, maybe I should have clarified. The alt for that 2:59 UCLA squad.

                            And of course, 'bellows23' got it pretty quick, 200m Gold at Barcelona for Mike Marsh.

                              If Steele can pull a rabbit out of the hat and
                              run like he did last year do think Minnesota has
                              any chance to be a surprise winner?

                                A lot rests on what Jacobsson can do on his leg - their weakest. Jacobsson is a world championships competitor in his open event, however he is going to have to pull off a big surprise if he is going to run a low 45-split to keep Minnesota in the game heading into the exchange with Potter.
