Oregon Running Legend Steve Prefontaine  Oregon Running Legend Steve Prefontaine

By Paul C Clerici Author, Pat Tyson (Author), Bill Dellinger (Foreword)
In the Footsteps of Oregon's beloved U.S. Olympic Athlete, Activist, and Icon
Born in the small town of Coos Bay, Oregon, Steve Pre Prefontaine's meteoric rise to cross-country and track superstardom included national recognition in high school followed by state, national, and world records. From the University of Oregon track to a fourth-place finish in the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, he never stopped striving to make his mark on the world. Even today, his name conjures up images of athleticism, activism, and charisma. While his life tragically ended in a car accident at the youthful age of 24 - at which time he owned every American record from 2,000 to 10,000 meters and two to six miles - his legacy lives on.
