 Berlin 2009 Contest

WINNERS : Bill Aris (FM Coach) and Ed Brittingham

Pretty much all of today's track and field stars are in Berlin for the 12th IAAF World Championships, but there are also stars of the past present in different roles.  As the competition starts to come to a close it is time for a contest to test your track and field knowledge.  We could make it easy like predict what Kara Goucher will run in the marathon, but this is the World Championships and that requires some work.  Below you will see photos taken this week in the press center of two former major stars of the sport.  One now works in broadcasting while the other is involved in coaching and working within his nation's Federation.  So after you have a look at the photos send in your answer to metroresults@gmail.com.  Be sure to put in the subject line which photo you are guessing at.

Now most important what can you win?  The award to the two people selected at random from the correct answers recieved will get a Berlin 2009 spike bag like in the photo at the left.  Get your answers in soon - ENTRIES CLOSE at 6pm Berlin time (high noon on the East Coast of the USA) on Monday August 24th.  ONLY 1 GUESS PER E- MAIL
