Subject: RE: 1972 video of Debbie Heald

Message:
Doris Brown also made the US squad, but was injured warming up for her heat at the OG, IIRC. No idea what happened to Heald.

And Bragina absolutely thrashed the field in the OG, running something like 4:00.4 in the final? I believe she set a WR in each of the three rounds, though maybe I'm thinking of Kazankina in later years.

And a note: Many do not know that Francie's considerably older brother, Ron, made the team in 1964. He (very)briefly appears in Ichikawa's film of the 1964 OG.
