Legendary John AKII BUA ...

Postby Guest » Thu Jul 17, 2003 11:35 am

Sometimes, I wonder what a terrific Olympic
race the 400m/hurdles would have been if most
of African countries hadn't decided to boycott
the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games.
Indeed, with the fantastic 1972 Olympic gold
medalist John AKII BUA from Ouganda and the young
US 400m/h phenomenon, the battle would have been
really fantastic, knowing John AKII BUA was back
to his best level in 1976.
To my mind, this man who held the 400m/h world
record from 1972 to Moses' 1976 unreal irruption
for a dynastic reign during more than a decade,
belongs to the three/four best potentials ever
seen through the long history of 400m/h.
He was dead from disease a few years ago.
