To all you "EXPERTS",

Just a question for those of you who write/mail to this list
and feel/know that YOUR philosophy is correct. After the 60MH race
in ATL, Reggie T. said that his left arm extends at the finish
because he was taught that extending the arm extends the torso, :) !

WOW, that's quite contrary to what you narrow minded, "sprinter hater",
only care about distance events think, huh?

Is his way more efficient? Or is the "traditional" way of throwing
your hands back better?

Yes it's me JJ!
