    That's sort of misleading since the only event Muhammad ran against any high-level competition was the 400 hurdles, while Hassan mixed it up with the best in the world at every distance from the 1500...

    Here are my best calculations using a 30 frames/sec video:

    Naser: 12.07, 23.2, 35.17, 48.14
    Miller: 12.0, 23.6, 35.7, 49.37

    I don't know how anyone could have gotten 11.7 for Miller's first...

    Nor would I recommend a French woman sun-bathing topless on a beach in Mississippi or a Saudi woman walking into a bank or convenience late at night wearing a burqa.

    Obviously by the time Kipchoge started picking up the pace inside the last kilometer he knew he would survive, but given what happened last time, I'll bet there was still doubt in his mind as late as...

    I have a program in which I'm able to timestamp every frame of a race video, and I have her going through 100m at 12.0s and Naser at 12.07s. Note that in the live video you can't see the 100m marks...

    Good point. I guess it's in the eyes of the beholder but as long as everyone has access to these shoes what's the big deal? The UCI drew the line in the advancement of bike designs when the designs...

    That would depend on what unit of measure they're using. 4% greater energy efficiency doesn't mean 4% greater velocity.

    What do you mean by *permit" and which TV network(s) are you talking about? Anybody can lobby but doesn't the IOC make the final call? Also, what's changed since the Sydney Olympics?

    I was surprised that nobody had brought this up earlier. I think the 2019 Chinese women have no doubt replaced the 2001 Jamaican men as the most hapless relay team of all times. lol

    Doh! Of course, Japan itself was under occupation during the Korean War. We're talking 3 Olympics and 74 years, not 2 Olympics and 66 years. Thanks for the corrections.

    Japan has hosted 2 Olympics since the Korean War ended. Why now and why did South Korea co-host the 2002 World Cup with Japan if this is still such a contentious issue?
