    Glenn Davis #2 ever in the world?



    Hardly.



    Maybe higher than 10th in the USA, but certainly not #2 ever globally.

      I agree with Buckeye. Glenn Davis is clearly number two.

      His 49.5 in 1956 was more impressive for its time than was Young's 46.78. He then wins OG gold that year, then runs 49.2 for another WR in 1958, then wins 2nd OG gold in 1960 with a 49.3... and no one breaks his WR until 1964, then only by a tenth... and it takes altitude 4 more years later to have anyone runs faster.

      And it does not count but the last time I checked he was a pretty good quarter miler too, if you can call being world record holder pretty good.

        also... I think that tartan-type tracks aided the 400 over the fences even more than on the flat. Davis never set foot on a track other than cinders.

        Davis' breakthrough, from the low 50's to the low 49's, stood the test of time for 12 years !
