In reply to: Bullet 's message, "Bob Hayes (Olympic 4 x 100 relay)" on 08:03:41 12/31/16 Sat

might have been the fastest white boy that ever lived, I believe his best time in the 100 yard dash was a 9.4 I think Hayes ran 9.1

Hayes was 5'11",185 pounds and jumped high enough to catch 371 passes for 7,414 yards and 71 touchdowns.

When Hayes played, it was legal to hit receivers anywhere on the field. Also, a pass was a free ball and the receiver and defender were equally entitled to the ball, ergo: a defender could flatten a receiver as long as the defender was "going for the ball". Hayes was a football player, not a pretty boy sprinter.

Good memory Bullet, I had forgotten about Mr. Ashworth of Dartmouth. Also of note in those games were Yale's Wendell Mottley winning the Silver in the 400 meters (for Trinidad), and Jay Luck of Yale finishing two spots out of the money in the 400 IH. The US track team was coached by Yale's Bob Giegengack,

There were multiple medals won by Ivy swimmers led by Yale's Don Schollanders four freestyle and relay golds. When golds won by Penn-heavy Vesper Boat Club representing US in HW crew are factored in, I believe Ivy students and grads accounted for more medals than any other conference at those Olympics.

Obviously, we have fallen from that lofty perch!

Princeton's Jed Graef won the gold in the 200 backstroke on the same Olympic team with the great Schollander.

More obscurely, a young Tiger hoopster from far-off Missouri captained the gold-medal basketball team. William Warren Bradley then returned to campus for his senior season, the last gold-medal Princetonian to do so prior to Ashleigh Johnson '17.

Bill Bradley on USA gold medal basketball team.

A couple ivy leaguers won medals in obscure sports like sailing.

1964 a very good ivy Olympic year.
