|Subject: ||RE: Madison, Felix, Knight, & Jeter go 42.19 @ Penn!!|
How f-ing great is that team, each leg of the relay optimized:
Madison--blazing start and acceleration
Felix--great speed endurance without the need to start
Knight--capable turn runner
Jeter--huge top-end envelope
I think that Knight might be the unsung hero of this team. So much can happen in that turn, things are very deceptive. IMHO, that is where the 4x100 is most often won and lost, it is the sneaky leg.
Didn't Knight have a killer 200 last year, or the year before?
I think this team should be cemented right now, and in this order, and should practice somewhere. There are members of the team seeking lots of individual glory this year, but in my experience, there is nothing as good as the sharing of victory with relay teammates, and that team atmosphere has much more of a nationalistic flavor to it than does any individual athlete.
Wow, London will be a real dogfight in the women's 4x100
