For a long time, I've had said Eddie Hart walking down Valery Borzov in revenge for the "wrong schedule" fiasco of the scandal-ridden Munich Games. Hart was simply flying. More than 15 years later, Ashford's anchor in Seoul trumps that one, due to the size of the lead spotted.
I must add, any televised Carl Lewis anchor in his heyday raised goosebumps on my flesh. He was so smooth, his torso arched just so, with that efficient Tellez arm motion. What a stride he had.
