"The following photo [of slightly mediocre quality] was made in Olympic Stadium (Atlanta, 1996) just before Donovan Bailey became the World's Fastest Human. (More on Bailey). If you look *real* carefully... you can see one of my favorite athletes, Jonathan Edwards (more) in the background. The guy in the white shirt? That's me." -- G.P.
