    For once I believe that, only someone familiar with track knows about that second leg on a 4x1. You want your best 200m guy there so he can push the zone at near max velocity. Tons of 4x1's won/lost right there.

    Cool story and ya need more of that and less..."see me everyone aren't I funny"...since you aren't.
    I actually also was our top 200 runner. Qualified for state in that as well. But ended up skipping the race because our 4th leg skipped his 400 to focus on the relay. Thought it was cool to not care about the 200. Looking back, wish I would have ran it. Yep...the guy that I beat in county who took 2nd in county won by 20 yards. I still remember sitting in the stands watching him come around the turn thinking I might have made a mistake.

    The 200m is more about....speed endurance...than explosive speed. We see more white sprinters there than in the 100m because of that. More about sustained speed.

    I hear ya about looking back and thinking you made a mistake, I should have been a linebacker instead of a running back.

    You you have any idea at all about what you are.... trying..... to talk about? What do you mean he turned down the Olympics? Nobody is asked/told to compete, they have to win a spot in the trials. Are you saying he never ran in the trials?

    Dude, you are totally ing this up.

    Was invited to the trials based upon his college career after WWII. Turned it down. Had the 100 M record for his school at the time. ran against Mr. Dillard on more than one location.

    not by me here. yep...I did all those things. got a few medals somewhere. none of them gold which is why I don't even think about it much. the story about the 2 sports guy above brought it back to me. should have enjoyed it more at the time but was made about not winning. we lost to the same team that we always ran against in county and had beat that same year.

    maybe wouldn't have felt so bad if it was to some other team. losing to someone you know you can beat...sux.

    I also remember our team getting 2nd in a major soccer tournament after blowing a 3-0 lead. We only had 11 and the ref red-carded our left wing for not much of a foul.

    After the trophy ceremony, most our our team threw the trophies in the trash on the way to the cars.

    Dumbass punks at that age.

    I definitely prefer sprints to boring ass jogging. Easier on the knees too.

    I ran the 100.4x1,200 and the some time 4x4 relay. Ran as soon as I got in school, that rarity.....a fast white kid. It didn't take me long to see the difference between us white kids and the black ones. All the fastest kids in central Cali were black.

    Lemon King Delano...an Olympian
    Tommie Smith....Lemoore an Olympian
    Maxie Parks...Fresno an Olympian
    Sam Davis Fresno....took third in the NCAA 100m, Fresno
    Jerry West Corcoran...fastest 400 kid in the nation.

    now add...

    Ocie Early Tulare
    Ken Thomas Hanford
    Augusta Brown Redwood
    Ernie Smith (Tommie's brother) Lemoore

    I was a 10.2 yards guy, which is good....for a white guy.

    Approximately what % of the music/track population were not named after a tangy fruit?

    And why were Lemons preferred over Limes considering that Lemons are especially slow and can't be trusted to finish a race? And Yes, I know Lemons have a unique gift for tickling the Ivories. ( Added to circumvent information well known to all)

    List all the track and music guys named Lemon.
    There are a whole tree full of them. Back in the day it was just one of those things?
    You Cali fruits grow quite a few Oranges as well.
    Why not Boscoe or Hammersfield? These are nice names.

    oh Avante, finish this old Howard Cosell saying:

    Miami has the oranges, but _________________________
