Tribute Video To Frank Shorter

 

When Frank Shorter graduated from Yale in 1969, he was already one of the most promising distance runners of his era.

As a post-collegiate athlete, Shorter continued to blossom – winning 4 consecutive national cross country championships as well as both the 10,000 meters and the marathon in the 1971 Pan am Games. Shorter is also a 4-time winner of the prestigious Fukuoka Marathon which in the 1970’s was generally recognized as the most elite annual international marathon of its day.

Shorter’s track success also spilled over onto the roads – with the former Sullivan Award winner adding a Peachtree Road Race win and two Falmouth Road race titles to his resume.

Without question, the pinnacle of Shorter’s career was his gold medal performance in the 1972 Olympic marathon. Shorter employed tactical surges over Munich’s winding streets to sneak away from the field to win easily in 2:12:19. Shorter defended his title 4 years later in Montreal, finishing second to Waldemar Cierpinski. Subsequent revelations tainted the East German’s win when Cierpinski was implicated as a part of a states-sponsored doping program.

Shortly after the turn of the century, Frank Shorter served as the chairman of USADA – the United states Anti-Doping Agency, a body he helped to establish.

Perhaps Frank Shorter’s greatest achievement is one that no one could have imagined. His gold medal performance ignited the 1970’s “Running Boom” thereby unleashing an enduring positive, transformational impact lifting millions who are pursuing a healthier life-style through running. Frank Shorter’s gift to us all remains an unwavering force to this day.
