  • RIP: Mort Tenner, 92

    https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/la...&pid=196390080

    Few of you probably know his name, but he was one of the sport's great friends in LA for decades, and was track's Competition Director in '84.

    I had no idea Mort was still with us. Great guy who loved the sport and did a whole lot for it.

        If you lived in the Los Angeles area in the 1960's and followed track and field, you probably knew the name of Mort Tenner. He was a good person and a definite friend of our sport.

          A deeper remembrance of his T&F contributions is found by scrolling down halfway at:

            He was my high school principal (Los Angeles Franklin) fifty years ago. On the faculty at the time were Pete Clentzos, 1932 Olympic pole vaulter (for Greece), and Richard Romo, a 4 minute miler back when there were not many (he was the 19th American to do so). Mort was the Competition Director for track and field in the 1984 Olympics.
