    I would say there is a 70% chance they will get it around, and a 40% chance that they will get it around efficiently. But even if they don't, they could still win.

    Still, although Morrow and Sime were definitely faster sprinters than Boling, by the watch Boling is faster. If you're making a list purely based on times, Boling is ahead of them. Yes, it's due to...

    Long Jump Landings

    I wonder if any of you with technical knowledge, know why long jumpers (and perhaps triple jumpers as well), now sit down of fall down (backwards) on their landings, vs. in the past, jumpers would...

    I think the original post was about fastest sprinter in terms of time. These days that means FAT times. Morrow, Sime, Patton, almost anyone from the 60s or before, are out of the picture because...
