First SOG I was able to watch live all the way (because Seoul was a bad time zone for me as a kid and I remember Wronski and Legien the most) :p


Some of my memorable moments from athletics:


Nobody pays attention to the winner as Gail Devers blows it. Unlike Lolo Jones 16 years later, Devers still had 100m to make up for the drama.



Kevin Young's WR.



And the 800m finals.
