#8

would love to see a pic of that finish

2-100ths at 48-second pace is … about 0.08 inches?

so less than a 10th of an inch separating first and second?


#9

No, it’s more than half an inch (also, it’s 2 thousandths of a second, but I assume that’s a mistype).

#10

no, i’m just a moron


#11

Google’s unit handling capabilities are great; I use them all the time for physics and for running.


#12

Miami probably had their fastest guy running last, and he probably ran 46.x, sooooo

That race probably finished with the Miami guy closing a 3 second gap on a 49 second runner, but failing to win by 1.6cm. Pretty dramatic stuff.

Can anyone confirm this?

Who the hell runs a sub 46 guy second in a race where the outcome is in doubt?

#14

That is not a typing error. Came straight from Delta Timing site.


#15

Reuben F. had a typing error, not you (2 hundredths instead of 2 thousandths).

No big issue though.

Is there a video of this anywhere?


#16

Come on brah


#17

Clearly you have fallen into my trap.

Or I’m an idiot. One of the two.


#18

it’s really not an unheard of strategy to put your two fastest guys first and try to just build an insurmountable lead. in fact, Miami used a pretty similar strategy since the two teams were pretty much neck-and-neck going into the final leg. Miami’s anchor probably ran 48-high, and he did beat the Aquinas guy.


#19

Miami’s fastest runner, Hugh Graham, ran 45.9 on the 2nd leg. Two of the Miami runners, Artie Burns and Jeffrey Green were a soph and a freshman respectively.


#20

So both teams had their fastest guys second! I NEVER saw that done when I was running, but I guess strategies have changed in the last 30 years.
