  • USC's Gary Carlsen (6th in the '68 OG) became a dentist

    • Binga Dismond equalled Ted Meredith's World Record for 440y in 1916, but the mark was never ratified because the track was measured 18 inches from the curb. The 12-inch requirement had recently been adopted and many tracks at that time were measured 18 inches out. He later became an MD. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2594046/

            • W.G. Grace was a doctor and did the hurdles once....and a lot of people actually heard of him... though almost none in the US.

                I think in his heyday he was the most famous sportsman in England. He had a very large beard for a hurdler!

                  More than just his heyday - when Peter Matthews did his Guinness Book of British Sportsmen (or some such title), he picked Grace as the greatest British athlete of all-time. I think he set an early world best for the 400 hurdles although it was well before the IAAF

                    This reference might have gone over many a head, but I'm sure there are plenty of us here who shiver at the thought of this memorable cinematic scene.

                      Definitely still highly thought of. A national legend...and Matthews favorite sport is cricket so an easy choice.

                      Grace was quite a character. Once in a cricket match where he got most of the gate receipts, usual for him, he got bowled out very early. Grace just put the bails back on and continued batting....telling the confused bowler...

                      "They came to see me bat, not you bowl..."
