Hayes Tokyo video!

Postby tafnut » Wed Apr 23, 2003 4:18 pm

I've been looking for this for the longest time and the mpeg thread got me to Googling . . . and I found it on an NFL tribute video at
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/5742154
It's not the 24 frames per second version, but it quenched my nostalgic thirst.

thanks! 30 years after first reading about that relay leg I finally get to see it, awesome! If anyone knows where I can get a copy of the IAAF 1979 World Cup Video (they were advertised for sale in T&F News years ago) I would be one very happy camper. I was at that meet and because of where I was sitting saw about the first 50 metres of the women's 200 and that was it. Have never seen that race to this day, on tv or video. And I would be willing to pay for it. :)

That's an excellent link.
When you view the Video of his Relay Leg. Look at the timer of how long the video is. Look at it when Bob starts his acnhor leg, and look at it again when he dips at the line. It's an estimate time of his anchor leg.
I tried it 4 times and it ranged from 8.5-8.8s!!
Cool!!!

I got between 8.6 and 8.7. And the video DOES start at the time he gets the baton. But it looks like he's in WORST than 5th place. And look at the distance he leaves the pack when he crosses the tape! UNFREAKIN' REAL!!!!!!!!!!! Peace.

I used to always think (when Michael Johnson ran) who in the history of track would stay with Michael Johnson. Only two came up: 1) Jesse Owens. 2) Bob Hayes. Owens had the speed, but more important, he had the sprint technique. Bob Hayes had the straight up closing speed. Peace.
