"Yeah, but I love her," said Fiasconaro. "Hey, what time is it in Ontario? There's a girl there I want to call. She's fantastic. I think I love her."
That night, Winzenried decided he had only once chance: to come out blasting. Winzenried would decide the same thing if he were running 60 yards or a marathon. "They don't call me Super Rabbit for nothing," he said. And he came out blasting. Behind him, Wohlhuter and Fiasconaro dueled for second place, with the latter in the lead.
With 60 yards to go, Fiasconaro flew away from Wohlhuter and past Winzenried to win easily in 1:10.8 on a very slow track. Flagged, Winzenried finished a close third behind USC's James Baxter, with Wohlhuter fourth.
"It was a stinking race," said Winzenried. "If I had been up in the stands, I'd have booed. In fact, I almost went into the stands when he blew past me. Man, he's so strong I could feel the vibes."
"Hey," said Fiasconaro, with some excitement. "You know what just happened?"
"Yeah, you won."
"What? Oh, no. I got kissed by an actress. She came up and said she thought I was great. I said O.K., let's go. She said wait a minute, she'd be back. She's right over there."
"Well, go on over," said Banner.
"No," said Fiasconaro. "I don't want her to think I'm bloody pushy."
