    A REAL test for you American track fans (and a treat for the Brits). It's one thing to keep on top of your own country's lists, but how much attention do you pay to the nation that gave you the gift of the English language?! (All in the name of fun, of course).

    200: 5 under 20.20 – Regis, Christie, Malcolm, Devonish and _____?

    400: 5 at 44.50 or better. Thomas, Black, Richardson, Redmond and _____?

        Here's a guess for the high jump, Brendan Reilly? I think he cleared 2.31 or so, not sure.
        If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

            OK, I guess I should have stated in my original post - don't post answers on here, or else you ruin it for everyone else! :roll:

            SC - Yes, I did mean to put 6 under 20.20 with Campbell being the other one I was going to name.

              The 2nd one was definitely the easiest of the bunch because you excluded Campbell.

                          Thompson's best was at the 1974 Commonwealth Games 2;09+.

                          Other than Clayton, no one ran under 2;09 until 1981.
