              Leslie Laing (another LL).

              Madeling Manning (another MM).

              I keep thinking of more:

              Mark McKoy, Maria Mutola, Viorica Viscopoleanu, Brahim Boutaib, Bob Beamon, and Lillie Leatherwood.

                  I tried this the last time I was sick and needed something to kill time; but I can't remember how far I got. I think I used Arvo Askola, Bob Beamon, Dudley Dorival, Erik Elmsäter, Lauri Lehtinen, Matt McGrath and Ralph Rose...

                  I hope KDFINE got this idea in full health

                        Valerie Vili (is that cheating?)
                        Willis Ward
                        Willi Wülbeck
                        William Watson

                        Tommy Thomson; though that may also be cheating, since I'd call him Earl if I didn't have to make him alliterate.

                          I don't recall hearing Thomson called Tommy Thomson much. If his nickname was used it was generally by itself, or else he was called Earl Thomson. And Watson was much more commonly referred to as Bill Watson.

                              Thanks. Health is good enough. Its cold out and I'm supposed to be working on my taxes but this is more fun.
                              Front page article today mentions Katrina Krabbe but we already have a more notable KK.
                              Ralph Rose and Lauri Lehtinen are more notable choices in terms of their accomplishments than Rod Richard and Lutz Long, though more people probably heard of Long than Lehtinen (or Lopez Lomong).
                              I can't believe that I didn't come up with Bob Beamon since we're both from Queens and have the exact same birthday (so maybe I'm not in "full health"). Steve Scott is another one that I should have.
                              Terry Tobacco works better for me than Tom Tellez.
                              Wasn't there an X-C runner of some note from the early 60s named Gene Gurule (sp?)?
                              If Gurule works than we just need II, OO QQ, UU,XX, and YY. There is probably a Russian or Ukrainian with YY.
