From the East Regional, we have Army's Trevor Hopper in the 400m.

An exhausting way to run the race, if you ask me.

Yet another from the East Regional . . .

Cornell's Geoff Van Fleet in the 1,500.

He was ranked 34th, so he'll need to be fleet to make the 12-man final.

Although it wasn't really related too his event, I always liked the name of the French middle distance runner of the early 50s--Robert Chef D'Hotel.

There was a good lacrosse player in my area a few years back whose name was Scott Lacrosse. That might be the best all time sports name. I mean, he was Mr. Lacrosse, every year!

You could have put together a Third Reich relay team from the West Regional: Gehring, Braun, Komandent and Krauter.

How about a former High Jumper and Basketball player for Ole Miss - Tim Jumper

I also trained with a marathoner - James "Crash" Wall. (guy had endurance like you wouldn't believe - no wall crashes in his marathons)
