Who could disagree? I expected him to be in the thick of the discussion over Bolt vs. Hayes; I'd put TS there, too, even if the San Jose sprinters did have their share of "modern" sprint technique from Bud Winter.
I watched him go for the 440 WR one windy day at SJS, but the wind was too much. That was a few years before Lee Evans upped the work ethic to develop all that strength down the homestretch.
[Actually, USC's Mike Larrabee had already shown the way as to "work"; he'd run his repeat ("Interval") 330s by starting out on the 150 yd. stretch w/ us Sprinters and just keep going at the same pace as we pulled up to stroll back for our own, lazier versions of Intervals.]
