Kingmaker's replies

It's obvious that Kingmaker is the only person who has understood what I am asking and is treating the question seriously.

Thanks, Kingmaker.

Continuation of the question of the white man's world record

Borzov, Wells etc are white.
The current world record holder, Asafa Powell, is black.

Now my question was: has any white man ever gone under ten dead? Who holds the white man's world record?

What's the white man's world record for the 100m?

What's the fastest any white man has ever run the 100m? I think it's 10.07 by Borzov in 1972 but I'm not certain...has any white man ever been under ten dead?

Hopefully this will get a few replies!

What's Allan Wells up to these days?

What's Allan Wells up to these days? I know he became some sort of personal trainer after retiring from competitive athletics, but that was in the early 80s...I just wondered what he's doing now.

What is the white man's world record for the 100m?

Yes that's right - I want to know:

1/ What is the fastest time any white man has ever run the 100m?

2/ I also want to know the last white man ever to reach the 100m final.
I think it was Allan Wells...am I right?

Keep the posts coming!

David Bedford's court case

David Bedford went to court last year over some tv and billboard ads with a couple of actors who had his type of moustache and were advertising the 118.com service for directory enquiries. He claimed - and I agree - that the actors were clearly impersonating him without his permission. Now, my quest...
