Quote Of The Day
“I remember warming up before the [100-yard] final in Atlanta [on June 7, 1975]. I was real anxious to see this guy everyone was talking about. I was taking practice starts and getting loose, [when] we were called to the starting line for introductions. The official goes down the line: ‘Robinson. Smith. Glance.’ When he said ‘McTear,’ everybody turns to this guy sitting up in the stands smoking a cigarette with his jeans and track shoes on. I looked up and said, You gotta be kidding me. He stepped down on the track, pulled his jeans off and ran a 9.2.”
– Harvey Glance, talking about arguably the most talented sprinter in history, USA’s Houston McTear, in a great 9,000+ word feature on him in Sports Illustrated by Michael McKnight.
