Trackalerts has an interesting article stating that 4 statues of Usain Bolt, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Asafa Powell will be erected in Jamaica's national stadium over the next two years.http://trackalerts.com/Articles/statues-of-bolt-fraser-pryce-vcb-and-powell-to-be-erected-at-national-stadium/26251
It got me thinking. Oviously we don't have a national stadium but if USATF was going to erect 4 statues and put them in Hayward field, who would you choose? Actually, the more I think about it maybe I should ask two different questions.
1) If the US had a national stadium, whose 4 statues would you want in it?
2) If 4 statues were going up in Hayward field (Nike/Oregon ties), whose statues would you want?
1) Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Jesse Owens, Jim Ryun, Carl Lewis
2) Bill Bowerman, Steve Prefontaine, Alberto Salazar, Ashton Eaton
