Charlie - when did

Ben start achieving the sort of arm drive that we see in seoul?

Front on footage from '84 shows that its not present at this stage, however, niether is the dominance in his start.

In 1984, Ben had a false start and had to hold back. As well, he’d strained his hamstring slightly in the semi. It started to go in the final at about 70m.


I believe Charlie mentions the reason why in Speedtrap - you you donot have this - I highly recommend it.

I will have to read through Speedtrap, to find the reasons - but, from memory, I believe it was to do with Ben’s superior strength.

No doubt, Clemson could give us the details of the top of his head.


I will read through Speed Trap for you, and let you know what it says.
