  • Borzov v. Hart

    Does anyone know the respective 100 meter splits generated by both athletes? The 100 meter was so controversial and the US won the relay by a lot but on the other hand Borzov got the baton way behind Hart.

    I don't remember any splits, but I believe Borzov gained maybe a meter on Hart during the anchor leg.

      East German team did recorded the race with video and published splits in the book Olympische Leichtathletik Wettkpämpfe Analysen. In the 4x100m final, Borzov did 9.21 (first 50m 4.67 & second 60m 4.54) and Hart 9.25 (4.78 & 4.47), but the fastest was Mennea 9.20 (4.60 & 4.60).

        People forget that Robert Taylor beat Borzov on a 4x1 anchor with both about even.

          I wonder if Borzov would have a 4x1 gold medal if he had received the baton from Black / Taylor / Tinker instead of 3 dashers in the 10.3-10.5 range. Or I wonder if he would have had 4x1 gold had he not had 4 rounds of the 200m with a sea level record and a few rounds in the 4x1 the previous week.
