RE: Bud Greenspan RIP
Bud loved track and field.
I have a wonderful memory of Mr. Greenspan:
About 20 years ago I was talking with him at the Millrose Dinner (previously held the night before the meet). I was telling him about one of my class discussions about the fastest any man has ever run. Of course up until that time it was Bob Hayes' anchor on the 4x100 relay at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. I told him that I have never seen a good video of that relay. He proudly said that he had one and he would be more than happy to send it to me.
In addition, all of the videos of Beamon's historic jump was shot head on - not showing the magnitude of the performance. He said he had that one and would send it as well.
Two days later two VHS tapes arrived at my school with a note from Bud.
The video tape with Hayes included the 100 meter gold medalist of every Olympic Games from 1896 - 1988!
RIP Mr. Greenspan
