Don’t look back


During the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles I remember seeing the 110 meter high hurdles. The favorite to win was an American named Greg Foster. “ABC” even did one of their three minute features on him. When the gun went off and the runners charged toward the hurdles Greg Foster got off to a good lead. But just as he jumped over the last hurdle, he turned his head ever so slightly to see where everyone else was. BIG MISTAKE. That look back cost him only hundredths of a second, but it was enough to lose the race.
