    Re: John Carlos Quiz

    Before 1967, for whom did he compete? What did he accomplish
    >in the way of marks/rankings before moving to Texas?

    The first sign of Carlos I can find is in 1965, where while running for the NYPC (New York Pioneer[?] Club), Carlos took fourth in the US Nationals (AAU) 220 in 20.7. He was ranked by T&FN as 9th best American that year in the 200/220.

    The only sighting I have for him in 1966 is the AAU again, still with the NYPC. There, he ran a season best of 20.9 for 220 yds but did not advance out of the heats. Then, he went to college at age 22 in 1967.

    Carlos, of course, went on to earn four # 1 World Rankings from TF&N: '69 & '70 in both the 100m and 200m.

    In the 1965 AAU 220yd race, Carlos was referred to as one three “unknowns” who ran 20.7. One of the other "unknowns" went on to even greater athletic reknown than Carlos. Who was he?

          we're playing flip-flop here: in the '65 220 final it was Plummer then Hines. The next year it was Hines/Plummer. As noted, Hines went on to greater fame in the 100m in Mexico City in '68, whereas Plummer's moment of glory had been back in 1963 in the 440 with his 44.9y.

            Steve has it right for 1965 AAU 220. Plummer, then known, 1st, followed by Jimmy Hines, Tom Randolph, and John Carlos, all in 20.7, and referred to as "unknowns."
