  • Match Dream Relay (4 x 100m)

    If I had a men's 4 X 100 meter relay team of Bob Hayes to Maurice Greene to Michael Johnson to Carl Lewis, on the Atlanta Olympic track- and you had to select four other individuals to beat my quartet in a match relay, whom would you choose?

    By the same token, I have a women's team of Gwen Torrence to Merlene Ottey to to Florence Joyner to Evelyn Ashford. With what four other female sprinters would you confront them on the Atl. surface? Please give your answers in baton exchange order (and your reasoning where applicable).

      Well I'll take a stab at this. Men's team. Frank Fredericks to Donovan Bailey to Leroy Burrell to Linford Christie. Bjian you took my boy MJ and Carl so I had to go with Donovan and Leroy. Women's Chryste Gaines to Marion Jones to Kelli White to Chandra Sturrap. By the way what's up Wayne? How's your training going?

        Kelli White and Marion Jones would probably (on good days)gain a lead on Torrence and Ottey on that track, so you might be in good position in anticipation of the third pass.

        (a hint to those trying to beat my male quartet- don't sleep on Charlie Greene or Tommie Smith)

          Men.
          Fredericks to Carlos to Calvin Smith to Donovan.
          I am probably insane leaving out Mitchell running 3rd, but I like both him and C.Smith over M.J.
          Women.
          Privalova to Kelly White to Block to Jones.

              Privalova wouldn't be as effective as lead runner, she needs to go second.

                      Marlies Gohr, Marita Koch, Inger Miller and Marion Jones. Sub 40. Nobody will outstart Gohr and the German pass will stun everyone.

                      Ben Johnson, Tim Montgomery, Bruny Surin and Donovan Bailey. 36.8!!

                      and don' be givin' me no flak about Ben. Since bein' juiced was not a criteria.

                              I almost went with Glenroy Gilbert, he of the amazing backstretch runs for Canada (like his 9.02 in Atlanta, only 0.07 slower than Bailey's anchor), but memories of Montgomery's blazing finish in Edmonton are too impressive. I figure Ben would be 0.4 faster than Robert Esmie was in Atlanta on the first leg, and Tim would run at least 0.1 faster than Gilbert. So you get 37.19, not 36.8.
