    Lewis ran 19.80 from lane 7 in the LA Olympic final.

    With Mennea in lane 1 and unable to encroach on someone else's lane, there's little reason to have him in the race!
    I'd knock off X and I'd probably knock off Marsh. I'd put Borzov in 7, switch Bolt and MJ, Move Carl to 9 (what is his best time in lanes 7, 8 or 9?), put Carlos in 8, and put Jesse in 6:

    1. Mennea
    2. Smith
    3. Gay
    4. Johnson
    5. Bolt
    6. Owens
    7. Borzov
    8. Carlos
    9. Lewis

    Agree - also don't think Fredericks deserves to be in there - he was good, but a perennial 2nd/3rd place. .
    Harsh on Fredericks!! At his best he was the perennial 2nd place behind the 2nd greatest 200m runner of all time! The man needs a lane.

    If you had seen Carlos in 1969 and especially 1970, you would have put his name on the list.

    Came very close to putting Carlos there. I'm glad his name has come up.

    1. Vacant
    2. Valentino Rossi on a 500cc motorbike
    3. Juan Manuel Fangio in a Mercedes-Benz W196 (it might just stay inside the lane markings)
    4. A Rhino (supposedly hit speeds of 40MPH - and have poor sense fo driection - that should scare into going faster)
    5. Bolt
    6. Roseanne Barr - give him something he wants to get past fast...
    7. Colin Jackson (supposedly fastest reaction time of any human, so should give Bolt food for thought)
    8. Beyonce (give him something more to chase...)

    If Jesse Owens were 30 years younger, what would he have run in Mexico City, given his 20.7 on the Berlin dirt track to win by .4? Seems to me he would knock X off this list.
