    Good for Ben for being able to poke fun at himself. I was clearly on the wrong zoological TRACK with my classification of Ashford as a cheetah - she's a gaz-ELLE.
    Take good care of yourself.

    Tomorrow, a combined team from Harvard and Yale is competing in Ireland at the University of Limerick. The headliner leading the visiting team is Harvard's Gabby Thomas, last year's Ivy League and NCAA indoor 200m champ.

    https://www.independent.ie/sport/oth...-38242636.html

    To mark this occasion, I'm reviving this thread:

    There's a very fast sprinter named Gabby
    She is stocky but not at all flabby
    While at Harvard she would
    Run as fast as she could
    Being NCAA Champ ain't too shabby

    Someone wrote one after Neil Cusack (from Limerick) won the Boston marathon in 1974. I forget how it went, but started out something like "a lad from the Emerald Isle..."

    There once was a teenager from Staten Island
    Whose religion was the same as Barbara Streisand
    He dropped out of high school at age fourteen
    And broke the 1500 World Record three times at nineteen
    He was born 127 years ago on Sunday
    And died one month shy of a century
    He lost Olympic Gold by a tenth of a second
    And only earned Silver by a photo that was taken

    Abel Kiviat actually died ten months short of a century, not one month.

    And that wasn't a limerick.
