1988 Olympic Women’s 4×100 Relay – BEST RELAY FINISH EVER!!

1988 Olympic Women’s 4×100 Relay – BEST RELAY FINISH EVER!!

The United States knew who they would count on in the 4×100 relay final but such was not the case in the earlier
heats. Ashford: We thought some people were supposed to be out at the track to warmup and evidently there was some confusion about who should be where and when, so, you people just don’t know how lucky we were to get that stick around today, I’m telling you. Along with the 100 meter gold and silver medalists, the U.S. quartet included Alice Brown and Sheila Echols. Alice Brown to Sheila Echols who you see here then to Flo Jo, Florence Griffith-Joyner and then handing off to Evelyn Ashford who will anchor. Here we go, they’re in the blocks. Lane 2 is open, Jamaica has scratched (Starting gun fires) Alice Brown closing the stagger on Bulgaria
she is burning up the turn! here’s the pass
it’s a good one! there’s 1 down, 2 to go Much better than in the semifinal this is the critical pass for the U.S. will Flo Jo start out fast enough EXCELLENT! but they’re behind at this point that’s East Germany! to Evelyn! Marlies Goehr is anchoring and here come the Soviets! East Germany! HERE COMES EVELYN ASHFORD!! SHE DOES IT!! oh and she wipes her brow…she’s glad
that’s over Alice Brown gets out very well, in fact I
think she had the fastest first leg so she passed off to Sheila Echols very,
very well this was a good pass: out, in, boom and that was a critical pass
now Sheila can run and really concentrate on Florence taking off.
And Florence much improved pass between Sheila Echols and Florence here, got the
stick and just took off. But look at the East Germans.. Florence was behind and
the U.S. was going to be behind with the hand off Evelyn Ashford is going “oh
please don’t let me be too far behind” and for Evelyn, the anchor of her life. That pass was not a work of art, but that was a wonderful straightaway. And then this pass Florence Griffith-Joyner had regained some of what was lost
good pass that was a very good pass Evelyn is a good relay runner she just
held back her hand, didn’t move it, waited for the baton to be put in her hand and
then grabbed it. She didn’t even try to move it around wherever she could get it
and hold on to it that’s it. You don’t waste time. And she relaxes and drives
through the finish—she wanted that look at the look on her face.

  1. If you're reading this and you are a documentary maker, please please do a documentary on Evelyn Ashford. This lady deserves one!

    Too bad they didn't make a ThunderCats movie back in the 1980s. Evelyn Ashford definitely would have been Cheetara. Slim build, smooth form and of course, speed!

    In fact, I feel Cheetara should have been based on Ashford and she should have voiced the character!

  2. East Germany… REALLY???
    Test them bitches today and
    they would STILL FAIL… ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’‰

  3. Alice Brown and Evelyn Ashford were the true keys to America's victory and gold medal. Nicely done ladies… U-S-A ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Tokyo strikes back (KOR)

    July 02,2019

    Tokyo is about to take retaliatory action against South Korea for Supreme Court rulings demanding Japanese companies compensate individuals forced to work during World War II.ย 

    According to a Sankei Shimbun report, the Japanese government will impose restriction on Japanese exports to South Korea of three key materials used in smartphones, displays and semiconductors from July 4.ย 

    Tokyo is aiming straight at Koreaโ€™s mainstay exports. Japan will stop preferential treatment for the three key materials bound for South Korea, requiring exporters to seek permission every time they ship items to South Korea.ย 

    Tokyo has not confirmed the report. But its plausibility is high, given the cold response Tokyo showed to South Koreaโ€™s president last week at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Osaka, Japan and to a team of Korean lawmakers visiting in May. Underscoring the icy ties, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe greeted Korean President Moon Jae-in with just an eight-second handshake at the G-20 summit.ย 

    Damage to Korean companies is inevitable. Tokyo wants to bully its way forward by hurting Korean companies instead of dealing with the matter directly with Seoul.ย 
    Some think Tokyo has decided on retaliatory action for political gain ahead of July 21 upper house elections.ย 

    But economic retaliation could backfire on Japan. Losing Korean clients, who are the worldโ€™s largest in chip and display production, could boomerang on Japanese suppliers. The two countries rely on one another in complicated supply chains.ย 

    Over the last decade, companies in the two countries have been engaged in over 100 overseas resource developments. Any fissures in those long-held partnerships would only benefit rivals in other countries.ย 

    Business relationships must remain intact regardless of diplomatic friction. The Japanese government must not make a mistake out of shortsightedness. The Korean government must make extra efforts to restore the relationship and protect economic cooperation.ย

  6. I remember this race and Evelyn Ashford has always been my favorite… I used to run the 4×100 relay, I was the anchor also and seeing this just brings back good times… ALL of these ladies did their thing!!!!

  7. Not the best 4×100 by USA compared to 2012 Olympic , they broke the 27 years old Olympic World Record of 41.37 sec. to 40.82 sec.

  8. That was a poor exchange between Evelyn and Flo Jo but wow, what an anchor leg! The East Germans were doped up the eyeballs too so that makes Evelyn's run even better.

  9. @2:51 the flag waving and Evelyn Ashford running down the Germans was picture perfect ! God I love this country ! USA !

  10. The Last Duel Between Ashford & Gohr ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    The Iron Curtain Fell, The GDR reintegrated into West Germany and their State Sponsored Drug Program dissovled along with Gohr, Moeller ect careers. A Fascinating Era.

  11. one reason I fell in love with track n field was because of the ONE N ONLY Florence…. running like gazelle and her hair just floating in the air….

  12. My gosh these ladies just take off like Thomson gazelles…. Love watching Mrs Florence run… she just takes off n her hair floating in the air

  13. Evelyn Ashford was the best natural sprinter of her time. Flo-Jo never beat Ashford until Flo-Jo suddenly gained a lot of muscle and speed. Makes you think what could it be that Joyner was doing to run so fast in 1988 that she still holds the world record? We all know what she did and that wasnโ€™t fair to Evelyn, though so happy she ran the the final leg.

  14. Yo, she had to work extra hard because of that bad last pass between herself and Joyner. Also took her out so you know it messed up her acceleration, amazing. They all did their thing though, great race ladies.

  15. Evelyn ran a great leg but the way Flo Jo ran up on her either would dominated that anchor.. There was a lot of talent on the track that day.. And they did well because those where the days where E Germany and Russia where taking PEDs to another level.

  16. Evelyn Ashford comes from behind to win this race in every alternate timeline. Her will to victory is the only constant.


  18. Some things in life you simply never tire of, like eating your mom's specialty dish, date night with that special one, or a certain song where the magic never fades no matter how much you hear it. This footage continues to thrill every time I watch it.

  19. This is when Europeans (whites) stopped a lot of Africans (blacks) from entering Universities/colleges and they couldnโ€™t compete on a world wide level

  20. That was one of the gutsiest races of a lifetime. What a relay team the Americans had. I think it was the best ever!
