    1960. Must be Armin Hary. If not, Don Bragg or Roger Moens.

    For 1960, John Thomas is "correct". The other "sure bet" according to that one writer was NOT Herb Elliot. Try again.

    I would say the answer to the 1972 Olympic question would be vaulter Bob Seagren. He was a big favorite in West Germany.

    For surest bet in Rome I would have thought John Thomas and Herb Elliot followed by Glen Davis.

    For 1972 How about Keino in the 1500?

    One sure bet in Rome must have been John Thomas in the HJ. Who would have bet against him?

    Along the same line, T&FN gave only one man an "A" (almost certain win) for Munich '72. Needless to say, he did not. Who was he?

    (U.S. men's 4x4 also had--and failed--an A)

    '60 OG prediction

    The thread about the Rome 400 reminded me: Shortly before those games I read a newspaper article which stated there were only two "sure bets" on the men's side in Rome T&F. Who do you suppose he meant? I know, not really a fair trivia question, since how can you be expected to know what one particular writer predicted? Still in retrospect it is interesting to see what one expert thought.
