Remembering Roy Griak

One of the many Roy Griak stories that illustrate what Griak gave to the sport and the people in it is HERE
The author of the Griak story is Ken Popejoy, who had a distinguished running career, as illustrated in the old, faded b&w photo below.  It's from a mile race in 1973 at the LA Coliseum.

The guy in the Bowling Green uniform is Dave Wottle, 1972
Olympic champion at 800 meters.  The guy in front is Popejoy.
 On the right with USA on his singlet is Marty Liquori. Photo
