I would actually consider Allyson a good curve runner NOW. Its just that she is so known for what she does on the straight. All the people I named have been running good curves throughout their entire career.

From a "Power" standpoint I would select Usain Bolt & Michael Johnson.

From a classic sprinter picture it was Henry Carr & Tommie Smith.

Both Carr & Smith had the great lean coming around the curve (many times behind) and their tall figures and long strides would gradually catch their opponents & power past them so smoothly. Classic races, for sure. Wish we had videos.
