    This was BJs opener for Outdoors in 1986 correct?

    That year CF had his athletes in camp do both Tempo and speed on Grass.
    vs. Tempo on Grass and speed on the track years before.

    If he had this start in Moscow at the Goodwill Games just 5-6 weeks later he would have surely beaten the WR at the time.
    It was a sea level WR at 9.95.
    I had that race on tape also and watched the slow mo many times...he did not "explode" out of the blocks the way he normally did b/c of the horrible track condition.
    In fact, that race on youtube is from one of my tapes...posted many years ago by speedendurance J.Lee.

    I just got back from Disneyland a few minutes ago..I'll post tomorrow.

    I remember that race as well and looks like he ran about 130 meters or so.

    Yup..maybe even 140-150M

    He ran only about 85M in Zurich to make up for it ;P

    1986 continued
    and 5-6 weeks after Moscow was-

    Zurich
    10.03 into a -1.2W
    50-80m is where BJ ran out of his mind...Fastest 10m split this side of Bolt.

    subtract
    .1 for the wind
    .1 for a 1.0 wind
    .05 for his early celebration

    and you have dare I say -9.78

    so after beating Carl twice already in 86 before his third time in Zurich. Ben would have to hear Carl's excuses after each ass kicking.

    Wouldn't it had been great if right before the Zurich 100 Ben walks up to Carl in his Lane and says...what will be your excuse today?

    Much like what Tarver did to Roy Jones Jr. in their Second fight. You gotta watch it!

    http://m.youtube.com/?#/watch?v=UYCFR1KrD6g - gerald mcclellan n nigel benn, the fight of their lives documentary

    -its good to know that gerald is doing better, no matter what he did in the past(out side the ring), as well as the fact that his sister takes care of him(the care which he needs). Its always great to hear feel good stories about elderly or disabled being taken care of by family.

    -gerald g-man mcclellan was one of those fights that roy jones would not take, once in the pros. Gerald beat roy in the amateurs.
