Olympic legend to appear at Fosbury Track Camp
Olympic Gold Medal winner Tommie Smith will join teammate Dick Fosbury on the staff of the Dick Fosbury Track Camp to be held at Bowdoin College June 24-28. Smith won the gold in the 200 meter dash in Mexico City in the 1968 Summer Games and was immortalized for his silent gesture of raising his fist with his black glove on the award stand. Fosbury won the gold medal in the high jump at the same Olympics. FMI, slovenskicamps.com.
