I will continue to work on the series of best ever races (next will be the women's 800) but we are closing in on the end of the year and soon the start of the 2013 indoor season. And that means end of the year lists and rankings, as well as some early indoor activity. So as things begin to heat up it's back to the excitement of the sport, but I will continue to use the best ever series tho fill in the gaps, as I must admit I am enjoying the research as consuming as it is Read More...

Now we get into some interesting events with the middle distances, and for me one of the most exciting race on the track - the 800 meters.

That said, there were races that shone through - because competitors find a way to make things close no matter the distance Read More...

The men's event was tough, the women were even tougher. The biggest problem being depth, as most races over the years have suffers from lack of great depth. Just as in the 100, the great female sprint crews of the 90s have a presence on this list, but there is a nice sprinkling of some of the greatest female sprinters of all time with Evelyn Ashford, Valerie Brisco, and the New Millennium group of Felix, Campbell Brown, Jeter, and Fraser Pryce, among others are also heard from Read More...
