  • A Dream Mens' 100 M Where The Best Would Push (Chase?) Bolt

    Same concept as a slightly earlier thread about the deuce. Equalizing for training methods, times run at altitude, surface tech:

    1. Bob Hayes USA
    2. Donovan Bailey CAN
    3. Steve Williams USA
    4. Maurice Greene USA
    5. Carl Lewis USA
    6. Linford Christie GB
    7. Usain Bolt JAM
    8. Valery Borzov USSR

    (I don't have Owens here, but understand the contention for his inclusion in the dream 200. Obviously, in his day, his career easily eclipses Christie's or Williams'. These are just the guys I would like to see coaxed to stratospheric times by Bolt, for my own reasons (longevity, explosion capab., height being among mine). A case can be made for Owens here too, but I like him more for an all-time LJ)

        That's the dream race. Admit it.

        If we start playing that game, we all (well, some of us) have opinions that will get us banned.

            you dream,
            we all dream,
            for Ben Johnson clean

              worth watching the '84 final when he'd been doped for a coupla years already

              lead field in about 6.50+ but got flattened last 40 as dope had got him some 60m speed but not yet the last 40 ( actually never did, fully )

              he was at best probably a natural 6.50/10.10 guy but got helluva lot out of the drugs thru extended use

              at best, undoped, he may have just tied mcrae's wr, but no medals over 100

                Watching Seoul final again last week I was surprised how little the field caught up with him over the last 40... compared to Zurich a month earlier when he faded so badly

                    No, not at 100m.

                      And think about Gatlin as well.

                          yep, admission of guilt gets you nowhere in track and field.
