New 1972 Olympic Marathon video footage

Relive your past or at least watch this for the first time. Here is a recently uploaded video of the 1972 Olympic Marathon in Munich which was won by Frank Shorter. This video wasn't available earlier this month when I made this post on the 40th anniversary of the race and it is a more extensive video than had previously been avaiable on youtube. It is the first time I have seen this in, well, 40 years.

Announcing is Jim McCay and "Love Story" author Erich Segal who ran the 1971 Boston Marathon as seen here on some photos I saw on eBay
