                So do I. Sime and I wore the same college uniform, 4 years apart. His career was so struck with misfortune. And after a great comeback in 1960, to lose by so little, and then, in his final race, have the gold in the relay taken away because of the botched pass between Budd and Norton... crummy way to go out.

                  I sure it must still haunt everyone who was evolved.

                      I believe Sime was behind Martin Lauer when he received the baton but he ran him down easily. Unfortunately that was Sime's last shot at a gold medal. I still wonder what caused Norton's meltdown after the U.S. trials. I saw him in run in Oslo in '59 and he was awsome.

                        Norton's problem in Rome was quite simple. He had an unpleasant foul-smelling material in his neck, in all 3 events. Froze up in the 100 final, froze up in the 200 final, and went out too fast on Budd in the relay.

                        Sorry Ray but that's it.

                          Some of the posts seem a bit harsh on Ray Norton. As I understand it, he lost 7 lb in weight during the Games prior to the 100, and consequently was somewhat weakened.
                          Entertaining to see "Cullman" noting the disaster that was the USA 4 x 100 that year. I agree with him, as both Norton and Sime would have been worthy gold medallists --- the entertaining bit is that one of the German team which won was called Cullmann

                            Richard sorry if I was a bit mean to Ray, it's easy to type things. But this is the first I ever heard of his being sick. If so that's bad luck. It's his own quotes in T&FN I remember where he said
                            "I tightened up.." or something like that.

                            Ray also jumped the gun twice for a DQ in the NCAA the year before, in the 100 final.

                              Where is Ray Norton living now? I know, several years ago, he ran for office in San Jose, CA.
