Our speaker this year is Frank Shorter. He first achieved fame by winning the 1969 NCAA 10,000 m title. He won his first U.S. national titles in 1970 in the 5000 m and the 10,000 m. He also was the U.S. national 10,000m champion in 1971, 1974, 1975 and 1977.

Shorter won the U.S. national cross-country championships four times (1970-1973). He was the U.S. Olympic Trials Champion in both the 10,000 m and the marathon in both 1972 and 1976. He also won both the 10,000 m and the marathon at the 1971 Pan American Games. Shorter was a four-time winner of the Fukuoka Marathon (1971-1974). He was successful on the road racing circuit as well, winning the Peachtree Road Race in 1977 and the Falmouth Road Race in 1975 and 1976.

 

But his greatest fame came when Shorter won the gold medal in the marathon at the 1972 Olympics. He also finished fifth in the 1972 Olympic 10,000 m final. He was the 1972 recipient of the James E. Sullivan Award as the top amateur athlete in the United States. Shorter earned his Juris Doctor (law) degree in 1975 from the University of Florida. He finished second in the marathon at the 1976 Summer Olympics.
