    Give the poster a gold star!
    Added bonus points for mentioning Bremser--probably the most overlooked all-around distance lady of the time, who did indeed equal Prefontaine's best Olympic placing.

      Bremser dark hair, Hanson blonde. Bremser was a tough fast runner who, unfortunately, lost many a race/place/medal getting pipped at the line. Witness her reaction to Jennings outkicking her in the two mile at nationals indoors one year. WR to boot and Bremser got pipped. Jennings came from waaay back. Bremser just didn't have that finishing kick. Fourth at the Oly games is a hell of a good finish. Third at that Games went to Lynn Kanucka (?) Williams of Canada. PR for both women in third and fourth.
