Here Is a Name That Brings Back Memories

May 11, 1985

It was interesting reading Gerald Scott's article on Steve Prefontaine. I remembered Prefontaine as a superb runner and a great threat to get the United States a medal at the 1976 Olympics. His untimely death cut that idea short, but what I still remember is that in 1976 when the torch was carried into the Montreal stadium by two Canadians, one was named Prefontane--to remind us all of what could have been.
