The Video of the running events garnered much interest from the attendees at our Reunion meet and greet last Friday at LettermanS. Coach Groves liked it a lot, as he was there trackside with many Nittany Lions competing on those days in 1980. The videos are an eclectic mix which will bring a smile to just about every track fan out there, regardless of era. The short shorts, high socks, and afros of the disco era will make you chuckle. When you see the mustache on Greg Fredericks on the Awards stand, you'll be tempted to shoot Dr. Pete's Recovery Drink from your nose! Anne Fredericks even had to hold back as the rest of us gently nudged Greg and bought another round!
In addition to a brief glimpse of Mariel Hemingway in the days of the making of the movie Personal Best, you see glimpses of Nittany Lions Greg Fredericks, Larry Mangan, Peggy Cleary, Kris Bankes and Liz Berry. The interviews of athletes, coaches and others at the end are great too.
