    It is surprising that Budd's brillant and careful plan to trip Decker, backfired and in the end ruined Budd's race also.

    Very strange because i know Budd had practiced her tactic to trip Decker over and over in front of her coach and it was filmed.

    I have seen the film and it's pretty interesting that Budd spent more time perfecting the trip then she did training!

    Forget the ABC sanitized version of the Budd-Decker race. Check out the super-secret Zapruder film where a co-conspirator actually shoots MD from the stands. Budd stepping to the side is her attempt to get out of the way of the bullet.

    Well of course the IAAF is biased. Probably the USTFA too. Look how many years it took to figure out the East German block. Remember how much of a hard time the media gave Shirley Babashoff (arguably Mary's counterpart in swimming). But Shirley was right. Face it guys, you don't like the fact that Mary accelerated the sport.

    Maybe willjr doesn't know which one is Decker and which one is Budd.

    You're right. Never noticed this before. Zola stops and turns and punches Mary right in the kisser. Can't imagine how I missed this the first 1,000 times I watched the video.

    Im just stating a fact.I dont think people really appreciated Mary.
    wrongo!!!!!

    KIM does.

    I believe he has been shaken and stirred a few too many times . . .

    I have to agree with your assessment. Budd into the lead. With a clear half step lead, she starts to move to the rail. Decker doesn't want to be behind and tries to move ahead of Budd. Both go for the same spot on the track, except Budd is in front and Decker goes down.

    willjr just likes to stir things up, methinks.

    Yes, indeed. And don't bring your laptop with you.

    Puh-leeze explain the physics of exactly how Budd pushed Decker when Budd was in front of Decker at the time of the fall.

    Yes, I have watched the video, seen it lots of times. And every single time I see Decker run up on Budd from behind, boxed in and apparently oblivious to the runner directly in front of her. Then Decker runs into Budd from behind, trips up and nearly takes Budd down with her.

    I have never seen Budd turn and push Decker. I'll go watch the video again and see if it has changed....

    Hmmm, nope. This time Mary still runs into Budd and Budd still does not turn around to push anyone.
