1984 Olympics

I would like to brag on my best friend during elementary school and junior high, Ruth Kleinsassar-Wysocki. As I sit here watching the 2000 Olympics, I am reminded that Ruth was in the 1984 Olympics at the colosseum in Los Angeles! She and Mary Decker-Slaney (sp?) were rivals throughout their running careers. They both started running as children, and competed against each other as they grew up. I am most proud of Ruth because her running never went to her head, even though she has been a national figure in the sport of track. When she ran her qualifying race for the 1500 or was it the 800 meters (?) she beat Mary Decker, which was a goal of her life. I am proud to say that Ruth not only represented the USA in the Olympics, she represented all of us from Azusa High. May we all remember where we started out our adult lives, and that is was a pretty great place to start, and that we can all accomplish great things if we put our minds to it!!!
