RE: Bud Greenspan RIP
The track world lost some real giants in 2010. I am really in mourning at this time because our sport is in trouble. First we lose Doug Speck from Dyestat in early Spring. Speck was a giant in Southern California preps track. He was the catalyst for the Arcadia Invitational, and he was a huge supporter of track and cross country in the state of California.
Next, we lose Scott Davis, voice of the UCLA Bruins and various other national and international meets. Davis authored many track books and was considered one of the top 10 foremost track and field experts in the entire world.
Finally, we get word that Bud Greenspan passed away this week on Christmas day at the age of 84. Greenspan had the best Olympic documentary films ever. I met Greenspan after the 1984 Olympics at the premier of his great Olympic documentary 16 Days of Glory.
Bud and his wife Cappy started the film company called Cappy Productions. Cappy died in 1983 at the age of 51.
The sport of track and field has lost some real giants during the last few years. I worry that there won't be anyone to replace these icons of our sport. We need more people with the passion and dedication for the sport that these men had for the sport of track and field. These people lived their lives for track and field and running. I want to say thank you to all three of these men for their amazing dedication and love for our sport. Thanks guys!
