Those critical inches. Davis with two silver medals in 52 and 56, losses to all time greats Dillard and Calhoun in the Olys. Calhoun with two golds in 56 and 60 by the same margin.
Cordner Nelson's write up of the 56 Oly 110mH final, perhaps the best piece of track writing I have read. Parts of Norman Harris' write up of Snell's 62 mile record in Wanganui, are on the same level as "literature".
