BERNARD Adams receives the baton from Johnny Braaf in the 4X400m relay, the SA Colleges 800m record holder who had improved Robin April’s record of 1:57,7 set in 1968 to 1:54,9 on the clay track of Green Point Track in 1986. The handover here, however, was at the Vygieskraal stadium in 1985. On the left, in full Hewat tracksuit, is Faiek Davids, Nazeem Smith is waiting to run the final leg, and Abdullah Johnson, right, in full tracksuit. Clement du Plessis ran the first leg of the 4X400m – the Boland 400m champion in 1986 ! It’s a story to tell . . .
