Gail and I became friends with Bob Seagren and his wife Peggy in the mid-1990’s. When visiting Bob’s house, where this picture was taken, on view was his Olympic Gold Medal for the pole vault earned in 1968. He held the world recorder from 1966 to 1968. Bob is as American as apple pie. They don’t come nicer or more genuine. His door is always open to anyone who is in need. He is also a good cook and a father to twins, a boy and a girl. After his athletic career he became a spokesman for major corporations and did some acting.
