memorable olympians

Post by sticksb » Sat Aug 13, 2016 12:23 am

My earliest recollection of the Olympiad were individual competitors from the
1964 games . Bullet Bob Hayes , Al Oreter , Zhabo , Murray Rose , Billy Mills
Ralph Boston , Ludmilla T . Mostly track and field . Nothing today compares to
these games and they influenced me profoundly as it was about the time I started
testing myself in competitive sports.

HI CHRIS,
I CERTAINLY AGREE WITH YOU.FOR MANY YEARS I WOULD WAIT IN EAGER ANTICIPATION TO WATCH THE OLYMPICS AND ALWAYS FOUND THEM INSPIRING. UNFORTUNATELY THOSE DAYS ARE LONG GONE AND WHAT THEY HAVE BECOME NO LONGER HOLDS ANY INTEREST FOR ME.
REGARDS, PETER.

Nadia's perfect 10 . Niam S. explosive 1988 gold medal and Ms.Valarie Hooks fantastic
rear end . All else is now a Nike or Coke ad in digital detail . That's entertainment !
A tip of the hat to the fire burns inside thousands of youngsters , if only you could
wear it or drink it ...
