      He was listed for the latest heat of the 200 but did not run.

        If wind-legal, that breaks the M55 record of 11.44 by Bill Collins.

          Did Bill Collins have a notable track career as a younger man?

            He did indeed at TCU.

              Collins was a finalist at the 1976 US Olympic trials, and a member of the 1977 world record 4x100 team that ran 38.03.

                  In that same meet, I noticed that Curtis Beach ran a 50.57 400h. I wonder if he is trying out a new event.

                      Regarding the 1976 US Olympic 100m team... not Collins but rather:

                      Harvey Glance,
                      Johnny Jones,
                      Steve Riddick.


                      200 Silver medalist Millard Hampton joined in for the 4x100.

                          Not entirely new. In fact, not even his PR, which is 49.87, set last year.

                          But yes, he has said that at least for the time being, he's done with the decathlon.

                            It was a great performance but honestly it does not beat the 1972 WR by team USA from lane 1. Just my assessment, .. .just sayn.

                              That 1972 comment is an answer to a question I asked on the main board about other 4x100 performances from Lane 1 (USA 2016 Rio 41.01 for second fastest ever, and probably the fastest for Lane 1 for many years to come). Are there other great marks from Lane 1? (and what are the specifics of the 1972 mark?).
