Cheers. It's a great site.
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Vinopal's speed||
Here's a website with Vinopal's relay team's results. I was curious after he apparently mentioned it in an interview.
Vinopal ran the first leg of the 4x100. Braylon Heard, the WV RB commit (Heard's a 4* on rivals, 3* on scout, listed at 4.4 40 on both), ran second. They won the Ohio state championship with a 42.67 total time.
I'd be curious to hear what people who've run track have to say about what you can tell from where people run in a relay (do you put your fastest last to run anchor, and your second-fastest to start out?) and if there's reason to speculate wildly about Vinopal's running first. My impression is that you want to get a good start, so you don't put your slowest person there, but who knows what their coach did.
I guess the bottom line is that Vinopal is fast enough to run on the state champion 4x100 relay team. And that's pretty good.
Who knows if this is apples to apples, what with possibilities of handtiming and wind and track conditions and such, but Denard Robinson, Adrian Witty, and two others in the 4x100 relay at the 4A championships in Florida ran a 40.64, which, jeebus.
