It feels a bit uncomfortable for me to be blathering on about sports history with all that is going on in this nation right now. But no less a man than Pope John Paul II said “the dignity of the human person is the goal and criterion of all sporting activity”. And we desperately need humanity and dignity at the moment. So on we go.

If you’re on Twitter and you like lighthearted takes on sports history you simply must follow Super 70s Sports, written by the fabulous Ricky Cobb. He does little to nothing with track and field though, so I take it upon myself to post some track items done in a similar style. A few days ago I posted a Sports Illustrated cover from February 22, 1971, with the comment “Dr. Del Meriwether. Because that really happened.” What did I mean by that?
