    Re: Happy 38th Birthday

    her Olympic race occured on my birthday. The ice cream vendor gave me a freebie when my friends in the stands sang happy birthday to me. Womens HJ had Rosemarie Ackermann winning, 2nd gold- first came in '76 I believe...Sara Simeoni in 2nd and Joni Huntley in 3rd...but back to Zola--with a name like that, instant identification. Ran barefoot in races regularly. And who did she marry? Someone to get her British citizenship? Somebody "famous"? Anyway, happy birthday Zola!

    She just makes me remind of dark days of apartheid in South Africa...

    The '84 OG 3000. Slaney clipped her heel (Mary only had tactical experience in European and big meets, didn't know how to run in a crowd.) Mary went down and spent the next week whining about it. Give her this, Mary had a fine whine. Budd soldiered on, to the massive boos of the crowd. In post race interviews, Budd was gracious and "nice". I had thought her a bit of a carpetbagger, but I became a fan after that.

    A happy birthday today (Wednesday) to Zola Budd. Zola turns 38 years old. Any good Z.B. memories?
