Hal Davis obit

Hal Davis, probably the greatest sprinter who never won an Olympic title, has died.
Davis, who held the "World's Fastest Human'' title from 1941-43 after winning just about every major sprint title during that period, was a member of the original National Track and Field Hall of Fame, a class that included Jesse Owens.
In the 1940-43 seasons, Davis lost only three times at 100y/100m and was undefeated at 220y/200m. Discuss.
