Last weekend at the Black History Invitational Swim Meet I had the opportunity to speak with Bruce Wigo, President of the International Swimming Hall of Fame, for an extended period of time. As always, he provided several new historical facts and stories. Given my track and field background, I found the Milt Campbell story he shared to be one of the most interesting. Not only was Milt a great athlete, but he was also fortunate enough to have a great coach who cared and took the time to help him develop his swimming skills. The partnership they formed was recipe for success.
