That whole relay fiasco was just messed up. Marsh should not have run considering the foot problems he was having and the U.S. was just clearly screwed from the get go. They could've built a 5m lead and Bailey still might've been able to track down Mitchell. Just a bad year (along with '95) for U.S. 100m runners.
