    Why does the playing field have to be level? When Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul Jabbar) was a teenager, he was about FOOT TALLER than the other high school kids he was playing against. And in a sport...

    And here I am thinking that on a T&F messageboard, one is suppose to discuss and make predictions on future T&F events. Is this what constitutes "stirring the shit"? I hope we are all bigger than...

    When I saw their WR time, I was thinking the same thing.
    Their time was actually faster than the women's COLLEGE 4x1. With VCB retired and SAFP on her way out, Jamaica's sprint future (at least on...

    GH, thanks for the update. I hope the JA Feds drop this matter. Any further fight will look like they are doing it for Bolt's legacy rather than Nesta Carter's. It will be interesting to see what (if...

    I thought the protocol on reassignment of "dirty" medals has been settled. Since the Sydney Olympics I don't know of any occasion when a relay team gets to keep "some" of their tainted medals. Out of...

    There are no scenarios under which Bolt keep his medal. And if he were to literally refuse to give it back, it would be a worthless piece of metal. There are still a few people out there who believe...

    While Carl Lewis' arrogance rubs me the wrong way sometimes, it's hard to deny him his due as the T&F GOAT. The fact is "sprinting" is not a sport per se, but T&F is. Abebe Bikila, Haile...

    So now that Bolt has been "reduced" to an 8-gold olympian instead of a 9-gold olympian, will his place in the pantheon of global sprinters be diminished? Will Carl Lewis get a second look now that...

    In a 4x1 I would definitely have a problem with a male running into a female, but in a 4x4 I'm not sure a M to F exchange is that big of a deal.
    Regarding the running order, if you have well...

    Actually it's 10.47 metres. That is based on Bolt's 9.58 and SAFP 10.70 pb.

    For me one of the bright spots at the world relay was the mixed 4x4. And I hope they do not stipulate the running order for each team. THAT is what makes the race so compelling and fun to watch. By...

    In as much as I oppose rewriting history, a bit of a silver lining here is that for a few athletes, they may now be able to get that elusive bonus check ($100K..?) for breaking a WR at the Worlds. If...

    A Question Regarding the 4x400 Mixed
