    Re: Tommie Smith in 68 & 72

    The best USA 4 x 100 m. team in 1968 would have been Greene, Hines, Carlos, Tommie Smith. In the meet in Victoria, not only did Smith and Carlos run down their 'A' team rivals in the relay, but...

    The "streaming" fun will really begin at 7 pm Pacific this evening, when the track events will only be on NBCSN, for 2 hours.

    Re: Marita Payne-Wiggins

    Marita's 22.62 (1983) is still the Canadian Record, her 49.91 is co-Canadian Record with Jillian Richardson.

    Stream was good in Canada on high quality, little old 2nd-hand laptop, didn't freeze or lag once.

    Merritt looked very good. Does anyone know where the 20K was actually run?

    Thanks Flumpy. The schedule on WatchAthletics says R-O-A-D after the 20K, so they may be wrong, AaronK.

    @ user4 ... not sure where you got the idea that Tommie the Jet was generally "prone to injury". The only injury alluded to was a hamstring strain in the 200 m. semi at Mexico City.

    I can't speak to the results of the '68 USA trials, but there is no doubt that Smith tweaked a hamstring during the semis at Mexico City - there's a video around somewhere showing it. And he said...

    Re: World Relays- Men's 4x100

    The Canuck relay squad was pretty damned good in the mid-'90's. Gold in 1994 Commonwealth Games, 1995 Worlds, 1996 Olympics and 1997 Worlds. As pointed out, having a couple of 9.84 guys (Surin and...

    Re: World Relays to be in '14 and '15

    Suggestions for 2015 - Go with 4x1, 4x2, 4x4, 4x8, and distance medley (1200, 400, 800, 1600) , drop the 4 x 1500 (and I'm a distance guy). Use the results, to the greatest degree possible, to add...

    Re: Valery Borzov?

    No comment on the 100, but a healthy Tommie Smith buries Borzov over 200 m. Tommie was running on one good leg in Mexico City, and 3 weeks before the Games, he ran down Hines by 2-3 metres in the 4...

    Also worth noting that Brandon McBride who finished 4th in 1:45.35 has a birthyear of 1994, not sure if he is still 19 or just turned 20. That moves him up to # 5 all-time Canadian and another few...

    Re: Does the mile still matter?

    Yes, I put Sir John in the B section in the Mile in 1973 in Victoria. His Mile seed time going in to the Meet was 4:06, thus the B section was appropriate. I confirmed with the NZ coach, and he was...

    Good article on the front page, but I will correct Sir John Walker - his first sub 4 minute mile, run in 1973, was in Victoria, B.C., and NOT in Vancouver! As the Meet Director, I remember the race...

    Re: World Indoors on Universal?

    I don't think there is a Canadian stream. But it looks like links to live coverage (probably BBC2 and/or Eurosport) can be accessed via Trackie, as mentioned, or WatchAthletics.com.
