      Re: alltime top list

      have 100 people make up such listings, and you'll get 100 different results. Yours look very interesting.... looking just at the men, the only 2 that are clearly wrong IMHO are Allen Johnson 8th in the HH, no way he's lower than 2, and Randy Matson 4th in the SP, no way he's lower than 2nd. But thanks, it's good stuff to look at.

        Re: alltime top list

        Yes, lots of work went into this and nice to look at but Larry james in 7th and no Rhoden. No Juantorena in the 800 and Allen Johnson back in 7th??? and no Carl in the 200.

          Re: alltime top list

          Larry,

          Great job! That must have been a tremendous task to work through. I always like seeing other people's opinions in this type of thing.

          My list would probably look different. Here are a few areas I would have disagreement.

          1) Not sure calvin Smith would have made my top 10 at 200m.

          2) Wottle made your top 10 in the 800m but Juantorena didn't??????????

          3) Coe at #3 in the 1500 but Ovett not in the top 10?

          4) Cierpinski at # 2 in the marathon. Too high.

          5) Allen Jackson only at #8 in the 110 HH?

          6) Decker-Slaney ranked at 10k? She was #1 ranked in world in 1982 (on off Olympic and WC year) and was never again ranked in the top 10. Superb runner but not deserving of a top 10 at this distance.

          7) I'm a huge fan of Patti Catalano but to have her in the top 10 and not have Valentina Yegorova is not right.

          Of course all of this is in my opinion.

          Thanks again for the thought provoking lists.

                Re: alltime top list

                I agree with previous posters, enjoying the list.

                Many on it I haven't seen so, I can't comment on anyone prior to 1968, except only by reputation

                Kannouchi 6th in the marathon?

                I'd prefer those with Olympic and World titles over those with WR, but that's just my preference.

                    no, I agree with him on that. One great WR race is not enough. He has Bill Carr at 9th, he set a WR and won an OG title at the same time. So he's ahead of Tommie as are some of the others... but surely not Larry James.

                        Re: alltime top list

                        I think the whole point of such lists is to invite comment and get people discussing things. It is obviously a bit of work but someone has to do the first list. As in any hobby publication, you would get no feedback (or little) by just issuing some statement to the effect "I am working on ....., anyone having information on the subject, contact me at .....". In philately, if you publish a handbook on just about any topic, you must be prepared for edition 2, because nothing gets information out of the woodwork like exposing what you have found.

                          hj197 Steve,
                          Had you ever heard of him, before?
                          To resume: Tommie SMITH was the highest all-
                          time 400 potential, a supertalent you meet
                          once in a life.

                            "potential" does not get you ranked on a list such as this, results do. Yes I certainly agree that Tommie Smith MIGHT have done all sorts of things in the 400, but all he actually did, as an individual in the 400, was run one super race.

                              makes no sense, absolutely. I've said it once, said it twice.... Larry James is a super guy, great advocate for the sport, etc. but does not belong in the HOF, either does Charles Jenkins. Someone likes quarter milers too much.
