1) 100 Meters
2)Long Jump and High jump
4) Decathalon-men and Heptathalon-women
5) Triple Jump, 110 Meter Hurdles,400 Meters
6)400 Meter Hurdles

I totally agree except my 1 & 2 picks would be the
100 and 200 meters.Then the rest would be the same.
The only reason I say that is that the long jump
doesn't get as much publicity.We do need a solid
long jumper that can challenge or break the world
record.By the way,I don't know his name but there is
a 19 year old kid from the Ukraine who broke the world
junior long jump record.Hopefully he will continue to
progress and be a world champion at the senior level in
a few years.Whites totally dominate the triple jump with
Jonathan Edwards holding the world record and Christian
Olson is unbeatable over the last several years.Even in
the high jump,Stephan Holm is just about untouchable!

We think alike WL! Anyway I think the name of the young Ukraine Long jumper is Victor Kosnetsov. I figure High Jump and Long jump are even in importance. High Jump for sheer verticality and Long Jump for speed/leaping combination. And thanksWL for keeping a sharp eye on the world of track and field. Indoor and world championships this year so plenty to discuss as year progresses.

100 meters is indisputably number one. No question about
that. It's the shortest, fastest sprint, and the highest profile
event. I would put long jump at number two, and 200 meters at
number three. Along with the speed positions in football, those
are our greatest areas of need. We had a clean sweep in both
men's and women's high jump in the Olympics, so at least for
now we're competitive there. And I think a lot of people
consider the long jump to be about pure explosive jumping
ability, and that the high jump is more about technique.
Then again, maybe they think that because the long jump
is more dominated by blacks. Whatever the blacks do better,
that is what's glorified. If whites were superior 100m
sprinters, and blacks were superior at shotput and hammer
throw and whatnot, the media and sports fans would glorify
strength above speed. Whites would be "fast little guys" and
the blacks would be "mighty warriors." Okay, that's a bit
tongue in cheek, but I do think it's true to an extent. If whites
ever become competitive in a position/ event like running back,
cornerback, sprinting, long jumping, etc., it wouldn't surprise
me one bit if that position/ event loses some of its luster in the
eyes of the M*ndingo- seeking media and fans. And the more
competitive we become, the less it will be glorified. The media
and sports fans will constantly seek out any area where
non-whites are better than whites and obsess over it.
Maybe someday track and football will become like hockey:
white dominated, and half despised/ half ignored by the media.
They'll be reduced to covering Asians playing ping pong. smileys/smiley36.gif

Whites already dominate at four of the ones mentioned. High jump, triple jump, decathalon and pole vault. Wariner won the gold in the 400 meter. My list of "caste breakers".
1) Undisputed heavyweight champ
2) 100 meter sprinters (or hurdlers or 200 meter guys)
3) 1000 yd NFL running backs
4) NBA playoff MVP
5) Another MLB stolen base leader
6) MLB MVP candidate that hits for power and steals bases
7) couple NFL starting cornerbacks
Good for a start!

jaxvid, those are lofty goals indeed, but i agree with you totally. We have to set our sights high, or we won't get very far. We need a man who will beat the men, and unify the title. Then we need someone who will run the shoes off everyone else. We'll be making real
progress when those two happen.

Thanks for all the nice comments Sunshine.I love to talk
track and will talk for days with anyone that will listen.It is a pleasure to see other people who follow
the sport.It is one of the purest forms of athleticism!
It is a very beautiful thing to watch the human body in
motion.I get so tired of hearing comments like white
men can't run or jump.With the right genetics,and hard
work,the sky is the limit for young white sprinters.
There is no one color who can only run.That is what the
media has drilled into our heads.Whites were extremly
competetive in the sprints until the late 60's to 70's.
Around the same time that all of the leagues were
forced to be white washed.We are making a comeback and
these role models of today will inspire a whole new
generation of kids. smileys/smiley2.gif
Yes, absolute undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion and olympic 100 meters champion with a world record time would be the ones the media would have the hardest time dealing with. I think next would be a yardage leading running back in the NFL, somebody like John Riggins, except consistent over a number of seasons. I'd also like to add NBA All Star slam dunk champ to the list.

freedom, we had a white dunk champ a few years back in Rick Barry, but I agree we need more. I think a leading rusher would be highly important. Someone who is so much better than the rest that there can be no arguments about it.

I would like to see a white running back run for over
2000 yards and break the single season record.I want
to see one lead the nba in scoring.Peja was 2nd last
season and Dirk is currently 3rd in scoring.I want to
see a world record in the 100,200,and 400 meters.Wariner
has a good chance within a couple of years to break the
400 world record.I would also like to see some receivers
lead the nfl in receiving yards.D.Bennett came pretty
close this year.Also,for Klitschko to unify all the 3
heavyweight belts and stay on top for another 4-5 years!
