Track Photo Addendum

As an addendum to the blog post on my father and sports (Sports Talk—Track and My Father), I thought you might like this photo of my father, second from left, and his Syracuse University coach and teammates practicing starts before the 1932 IC4A meet in Berkeley, Calif. I thought the photo was phenomenal. Note that starting blocks weren’t used for another few years.
