    Agree with what you say. But I am not out to make money, just get them out to someone with some interest, rather than putting them in the trash. Surprisingly, they are moving quite rapidly now.

    Have been away from this site for some time. I have a comprehensive collection of TFN, which I would like to dispose of. Starts back in 1966 or so and is fairly complete through at least 2000....

    Interesting. Please list all the countries where Old Glory has helped liberate black people. I am aware of many millions of "black people" directly or indirectly "enslaved" by the actions of the USA.

    Good listings, especially the low altitude one. Shows quite a few held for ~10 years, but Edwards' "reign" of 23+ years, is striking.

    So, it would appear that in Mexico City al TJ, all the WR improvements were due to altitude (alone) - Gentile's - or altitude and wind (Saneyev 2, Prudencio). If so, that shows Schmidt's previous WR...

    The only WRs I can recall from Melbourne came in the short relays and some women's jumps. So based on competing in only one Oly, and two golds, it has to be Bobby Morrow.
