    Currently the TFN homepage links to SI's lists of the 50 Fittest Men and 50 Fittest Women on earth, each list with some T & F athletes.
    Beyond the astonishingly stupid premise of naming the fittest people on earth, the lists seem willfully ignorant.
    Rupp is listed but not Farah nor any of the legion of East African distance men,
    Eaton is #1 among men (I won't dispute that) but Theisen-Eaton is several places behind Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm.
    Sheesh!

    Soth was the only one of the four that didn't finish the race.

    The story said he was lapped...

    Anyways he mentioned Dave Bank meaning Dick Bank, famous interloper on the Billy Mills radio broadcast.

    Correction: Frank Fitzpatrick of "The Philadelphia Inquirer."

    I was immediately turned off by Fitzsimmon's front page article about the 1959 US - Russian (sorry USSR) Track Meet in Philadelphia when he wrote that "The Russians Are Coming" was a mediocre movie. I guess he was never a movie critic. But on a major story of the meet he was wrong when he wrote that it appeared that Bob Soth finished second in the 10,000 (to Desyatchikov). Everyone knows that it was Max Truex.
