Ed Eyestone, Todd Williams, Pat Porter, XC 1993, photo by PhotoRun.net
This photo is one of my favorite covers for American Athletics, the predecessor of American Track & Field. Funny thing is, two of my favorites are with Todd Williams. The other is from his first win at USA XC in November 1991, where he won the US championships, and defeated Pat Porter for the first time.
To me, Todd Williams will always be, the raging bull of track & field. He ran like a boxer battles in the ring. In his day, one had to run a round in the 10,000 meters to make the final. Then, two days later, one ran the final.
His second career, with RunSafer is fascinating, as Todd Williams is having fun and doing something wonderful for the sport he loves.
Jeff Benjamin, one of the few writers who wrote for us when we were American Athletics, wrote this interview with Todd Williams. We think that you will like it!
