US lead off runner Manteo Mitchell in the 4x400 relay (he had broken his left fibula)
It depends on what race you are running. For example In the 4x100 the 3rd leg is your closer he/she is the person who makes up for the lost time if the 2nd leg isn't fast enough and your 4th/ last leg take it home he's/she's your fastest.
It simply means you are the first person on your relay team to run :D
Yes, you have because you have to run a complete lap around the stadium
typically a relay has four "legs" or four different runners. Each must finish a specific distance (often one lap around course) before next runner can start. The first runner is the "first leg" of the relay.
Each segment of the relay is referred to as a leg.
There are typically 4 runners in a relay. Hense the slang for relays such as calling the 3200 relay a 4x800 relay. Each runner is considered a "leg"
