On Tuesday we talked to a University of Florida graduate living in London about how the Olympics will affect the residents of the city. Today WUFT-FM’s Robert Lopez spoke with former Olympian, track announcer, jazz guitarist, who’s been living in Gainesville for years, Marty Liquori. Liquori is a member of the USA Track and Field hall of fame and participated in the 1500 meter run at the 1968 olympics in Mexico City as a 19 year old, finishing 12th because of injury. In the 70’s he was ranked number one in the world in the 1500 meter race and won three N-C-Double-A Championships. Liquori talks about the mindset of the athletes heading to London.[audio:http://www.wuft.org/media/audio/METhursOlympicQA.mp3]
