  • 1972 Olympic Trials Track and Field News

    In the 1972 Olympic Trials issue of track and field news, there was an account of the men's 800 meters. There was a part talking about "Rick Wohlhuter coming down the final straight with a big smile on his face" or something like that.

    If someone has that particular issue, would you mind posting the exact wording of that paragraph? Thanks in advance.

    This is found on page 8 of 2 July, 1972 TFN (they use to print two issues each month). The article was written by Jim Dunaway.

    Here is the part of the paragraph you mentioned:


    <With the race for first over, it now became a case of "catch Ryun and make the team". First to make it was surprising Wohlhuter, who boomed down the straight on the outside with a broad grin on his face. Even more surprising was Swenson, although he later said, "I don't remember anything about the last 200 meters.">
