    Stanley Morgan was a track all-American as a member of Tennessee's 4x100m relay in 1977.

    That's the one and I have looked and never found anything about him as a trackster. I would think with his speed he'd be there. So where is that info?

    One such legend has his running from his home to the local town (Pontypridd) and back, a total distance of some seven miles, before his mother's kettle had boiled

    Stanley Morgan blew by NFL defenders. As far as I know he wasn't a trackster.

    Edit: I thought you asked for the fastest post-apocalyptic runner....
    Jan-Michael Vincent did win the NCAA team title by himself...

    So who do you guys like in a running race between The Flash and Superman. I gotta figure Flash is quicker off the blocks, but not sure about his staying power against the Man of Steel.
    That's SOOOO been done already! It was a tie when they both hit the speed of light simultaneously and became pure energy!
