    Re: Exciting past WC race--

    If you are suggesting that Dennis Mitchell "rabbitted" that '91 World Championsip race you are wrong. He might have reacted before everyone else but the actual race leader for the first 90 meters before being collared by Leroy Burrell and Carl Lewis was Ray Stewart. He looked likely to pull off an upset until shortening dramatically in the last 10 meters.
    Easily the most competitive 100 metres race that I have seen. Top 6 within 1/10 th of a second.

    I wasn't voting for the '91 M 100, nor would I. I was asking the question "who rabbited the race" and giving the results for as an aid.

    You're right, dammit. So now we've got three votes for that race. Would the next guy who does this please just refer to the race--we all know the results by now.

    Thank you.

    You're not paying attention yourself (and neither was Dave) - this race was first posted by az on Aug. 12 :-P

    Didn't Dave Johnson post the same race on this thread on Sept. 12? C'mon--if you're going to play the game, you gotta pay attention.

    "Results - 100 METRES - Men - Final

    Sunday, August 25, 1991 - 19:05 Wind: 1.2 m/s

    Pos Lane Athlete Country Mark
    1 5 Lewis Carl USA 9.86 (WR)
    2 3 Burrell Leroy USA 9.88
    3 6 Mitchell Dennis USA 9.91 (PB)
    4 4 Christie Linford GBR 9.92 (AR)
    5 7 Fredericks Frank NAM 9.95 (AR)
    6 2 Stewart Raymond JAM 9.96 (NR)
    7 8 Da Silva Robson Caetano BRA 10.12
    8 1 Surin Bruny CAN 10.14"

    Don't forget about the long jump competition from the '91 meet, also involving Lewis.

    Easily the best long jump competition ever. Lewis had three jumps of 29 feet or greater, included a wind-aided jump that broke Beamon's old record and a legal 29-1.5 (Lewis' third great jump at the meet was a legal 29 feet flat).

    However, we all know who actually won: Powell, with his world record jump. Great, great competition.

    That is correct! Rule 13.2 in the 1973-74 IAAF Handbook said, "The Olympic Games shall be regarded as World Championships."

    One of the best ever TJ comps (in terms of depth) at the '93 WCh... 10 men over 17m!

    1. Mike Conley (USA) 17.86
    2. Leonid Voloshin (RUS) 17.65
    3. Jonathan Edwards (GBR) 17.44
    4. Ralf Jaros (GER) 17.34
    5. Pierre Camara (FRA) 17.28
    6. Denis Kapustin (RUS) 17.19
    7. Anisio Sousa Silva (BRA) 17.19
    8. Brian Wellman (BER) 17.12
    9. Serge Hélan (FRA) 17.09
    10. Kenny Harrison (USA) 17.06



    Talking of depth, the women's 100mH in Paris was the best ever too: (9 women under 12.90)

    1  Felicien Perdita CAN 12.53
    2  Foster Brigitte JAM 12.57
    3  McKelvy Miesha USA 12.67
    4  Alozie Glory ESP 12.75
    5  Trywianska Aurelia POL 12.75
    6  Adams Jenny USA 12.77
    7  Girard Patricia FRA 12.83
    8  Golding-Clarke Lacena JAM 12.87
    9  Dixon Vonette JAM 12.87



    Also, (again from Paris), it was the first time 4 women went over 70m in the same comp:

    1  Moreno Yipsi CUB 73.33      
    2  Kuzenkova Olga RUS 71.71      
    3  Montebrun Manuela FRA 70.92      
    4  Gu Yuan CHN 70.77

    Re: Exciting past WC race--

    Here's another great WCh race from 97 - Men's 400m:

    1. Michael Johnson (USA) 44.12
    2. Davis Kamoga (UGA) 44.37
    3. Tyree Washington (USA) 44.39
    4. Mark Richardson (GBR) 44.47
    5. Jerome Young (USA) 44.51
    6. Iwan Thomas (GBR) 44.52
    7. Antonio Pettigrew (USA) 44.57

    MJ out front (yet again), then just 0.2 separating the next 6 athletes. Jerome Young ran an almost identical time to win this year's WCh, but finished 'only' 5th in 97.

    Someone mentioned the 1991 WC 100 final, with Lewis running a 9.86 WR, and six people under 10.00. The only problem is that it was a rabbited race. Kudos to those who can name the rabbit!

    How about the WC'87 mens 400H finish. I saw it live in the stadium and it looked even closer than it was. The crowd went bananas.

    1. Edwin Moses (US) ................. 47.46

    2. Danny Harris (US) ................ 47.48

    3. Harald Schmid (WG) ............... 47.48

    Sat at a table next to Quirot's at dinner in Zürich last week, and you'll be glad to know that her (ongoing?) plastic surgery(ies) have been very successful. Major parts of her face are back to normal.
