Frank shorter graduated from Yale University and obtained a law degree from the University of Florida College of Law. But nobody who reads my blog really cares about this do they? Ok. Let's get to the interesting stuff. How about...Frank Shorter, the winner of the marathon in the 1972 Olympic Games (The last American to do so). Now that's more like it. Yes, Frank Shorter is a running legend. The olympic gold medal he won for the marathon in 1972 was probably his best feat but he also had many other remarkable perfomances in his running career. Examples are his first place finishes in both the marathon and the 10,000m in the 1971 Pan American Games and his first place finishes in four straight Fukuoka Marathons from 1971-1974. A true running legend.
