History of the Ring

If you look closely, one can see a circle divided by a line across the center. This is a discus ring we drew in the early 80s when I was a track coach and coaching Carol Cady. We used rings drawn in parks and schools around to change the scenery for hours of drill and practice when Carol was in high school. 

It all was a joy and Carol went on to  compete for Stanford and represented the U.S.A. the '84 and '88 Olympics in the shot put and discus. Carol also held the American Collegiate discus record for about 16 years. She is now an M.D./PhD in private practice. 

Strange picture, I know. But, important to me!


  1. That would be neat to be able to say you coached someone who went on to the Olympics!
