  • Best same letter 4x100 teams

    Spinning off the excellent 'same names' 4x100m teams thread, here are my best 4x100m men's teams (1948-present), with each runner's name starting with the same letter. Four runners and a reserve, with the year they have been plucked from by the time machine. I don't have teams for the letters U and X

          The reserve spot for the C team would be closely fought. I reckon both Kim Collins and the 1969 edition of John Carlos would be well in the mix too.

          Kornelyuk would have to run the lead-off, if he were required. Kenteris clearly the better choice for any other leg.
