That only makes sense. Who better to rob a bank and get away fast than a world class track and field athlete? I'm puttin' together a team right now!

I think an elite 10x100m relay would be successful. Or have El Guerrouj grab and run it.

I had a USATF team bookbag stolen out of my car one night earlier this year I wonder if it could be the same guys...The bank where the robbery took place isnt real far from Clemson so it could be the same guys...but maybe not, I just hope they catch up with them.
