Who else is excited to see the track races? I particularly want to see the 1600. (Apparently the "mile" was taken out but 1600 is 4 laps on a standard track) Not only do I want to see it but I want to see the record beaten. Michael Johnson has the record right now but it's time for somebody to beat it. He also holds several other records such as the 200 and 400 and some others. Michael Johnson (athlete - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia He is out of his prime so he won't be competing but it will be exciting to see if anybody else can take his place.
