  • Your best "same names" 4x100m relays?...

    Steve Williams
    Bernard Williams
    Ivory Williams
    Jeff Williams...

    Micah Williams could be in this relay too.

    And this could possibly be a sub-37.5 relay.

        Could Allen Johnson, the famous hurdler, also be on leadoff?

              How about a 4x400?
              Lamont Smith
              Willie Smith
              Tommie Smith
              John Smith

                Great choices, though my fave is still "McCullough to Kuller to Killer to Miller" from the 2005 Tommie Smith posts.

                If you include hand times, there's a pretty good 4x100 team of "verbs" Brown to Cook to Glance to Bolt, with Chambers in reserve

                  On a different tack, a great 4x100 team names wise was the GB team that won the 2000 World under 20 title - Edgar, Grant, Benjamin, Lewis-Francis. Surnames made up of 5 forenames.

                      Sure,
                      before he was doped or not (I'm not here to judge) he was among the best starters in history.
                      Did any top sprinter ever copy his special way to jump from the starting blocks?
                      Never seen anything similar these last 3 decades.

                        I remember reading a coaching report that stated that you need immense upper body strength to use that starting technique.

                          Did the Howard sisters (Sherri, Denean, and others) have enough for a full 4x1?
