Berlin 09 Diary: JO-They like it, They really like it!, by Larry Eder


Dear readers,

We get notes each and every day on the sport, but I thought I would share this one with you from a Lou Myers in Great Britain. Kudos to the designers of the USATF Uniforms:

May I, as an elderly English man, who remembers the "Olyimpic Games,
Berlin", and has fond memories of "Jesse Owens", let you all know, that the
inclusion of "JO" on all the American Team outfits, is a wonderful credit
to you and your country, you really have gone up in the estimation of the
sporting people of England. More respect like this, in the so called world
of SPORT,is what we need.

Many thanks and respects.

Lou Myers. (The
Ancient Brit).
