AN OLUWAFOYINOLAMI Fapohunda by any other name would still be a mouthful.
Veteran journalist and name-dropper Frank Bertucci has done his annual canvassing of all the entries in this year's Penn Relays. Oluwafoyinsolami Fapohunda (I call him OF) certainly takes your breath away.
The long and short of the enterprise looks like this:
Um, Do, Mu, Gu, Le, Go, Wu are last names that waste little time writing. If you prefer a long read, there's Fapohunda, Mawusimensah Mears, Marco Doodnaughtsingh and Reine Fortune Mefotchou-Kendjio.
There are the Cooperstownian names of Staub, Mays, Ruth, Cepeda, Ott, Lasorda, Olivo, Slaughter, Reese, Gibson and Spaulding.
There's even two Genesises on the Bordentown High's girls 4x400. I'm guessing one of them runs the first leg.
