I'm with Teaboy, although Bolt at the 200 metres Olympics 2012 was pretty good. Shame no one can give him a race when he's in decent nick :-(

My 40:22 at Barnsley 10K in 1998. Never got near that time since.

Ah, they were the days.

1988 100m has to be in the frame but what about 1996 Olympic 10,000m, Gebrselassie against Tergat? Or either of Coe's Olympic 1500m wins or his 800m WR? Rudisha's 800m WR at London or Cram v Aouita in Nice 1985 when Cram took Ovett's WR? So many to chose from...

Got something to say?
