Roy's Postcards: 1984/08/03
Leonard and I went to the Track and Field at the Coliseum today with 2 of Dusty's relatives. We saw the 20 km Walk - Two athletes from Mexico winning Gold and Silver medals. We also saw Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe run in the 800m heats.
Dusty was and still is the president of MAP. The 20 kilometer walk is an honest-to-goodness Olympic event.
I complain a lot in these entries about my dad not spending time with me, but it goes both ways. If I'd known he was going to die soon, I would have put more effort into enjoying these endless trips to track and field events.
