  • Lou Jones, circa 1956

    Does anyone know whatever happened to Lou Jones after the 1956 season? His scintilating 45.2 WR in the 1956 OT was followed by mediocre pre- Olympic meet performances, and then an even poorer showing in the Melbourne Olympics.

    I've done no research, but I don't remember him doing anything in 1957 or beyond.

    He retired. He had his best years between 1952-1956. Was 4th in a semi at the '52 loy trials for instance....

      I talked with Lou in Sydney during the 2000 Olympics. He was in a wheelchair, but otherwise looked pretty good.
