ANOTHER OLYMPIC CHAMP
As eagle-eyed readers may have noticed, Carl Lewis wasn't the only Olympic 100-meter champion in that U.S. Olympic Invitational Meet photo (Feb. 18, page 21) taken by George Tiedemann at Brendan Byrne Arena.
Peering over Carl's—and a CBS Sports photographer's—right shoulder is Lindy Remigino, the 100-meter king of the 1952 Helsinki Olympics and an Olympic Invitational official.
Remigino has served his favorite sport faithfully as a high school coach in Connecticut and as a volunteer official. I only hope that when his competitive days are over, Lewis finds a way to put something back into his favorite sport, too.
