Your ultimate dream 110m/h final...

Postby 79. » Sat Sep 15, 2012 2:56 pm

There 've been so many fantastic specimen since the last World war that it almost seems
impossible to built this kind of fantasmagoric race.
Therefore, I would choose these eight legends:
- Rod MILBURN
- Reynaldo NEHEMIAH
- Dayron ROBLES
- Aries MERRIT
- Colin JACKSON
- Xiang LIU
- Allen JOHNSON
- Roger KINGDOM
....for a 12"70 performance ???

My pick to win that one would be Reynaldo Nehemiah.

To me, this ties into the other thread about track improvements. It is impossible to compare hurdlers who run on modern tracks with those who ran on cinders. I can't help thinking that Harrison Dillard belongs in this field. An incredibly smooth hurdler who also fast enough to win a 100m Olympic gold medal.

That having been said, I can't see him keeping up with anyone on that list. It's just one of those imponderables.

If you had a 9th lane, I'd give it to Greg Foster who was, after all, a three-time world champion. Jason Richardson is another world champion deserving of consdieration. At one time I thought Rod Milburn was the ultimate hurdler, but I can't see him beating either Foster or Richardson.

I agree with you on Greg Foster.

I think the biggest surprise out of such a field would be Milburn. IMHO, even if he doesn't win, he's very close. Certainly a medalist.
