Have you ever wondered if all 4x800's had really good open 800 runners on their team? Obviously some do have great open runners but often teams also just have 400m runners (L.C. Bird) or Milers (Loudoun Valley).
On the following pages we have ranked the top 20 4x800m relays for each gender and the top 20 teams in Virginia based on their average open 800m time. Compare the two and see how in most cases they are closely ranked but rarely indicative of where exactly they will rank.
