1960 Rome Olympics Mens Decathlon Coach Ducky Drake & USA Rafer Johnson & China C K Yang


The 1960 Rome Olympics was one of the most memorable in terms of drama, future legends and athletic achievement in all of modern Olympic history. Names like Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), Wilma Rudolph, Al Oerter and the Russian sisters Irina and Tamara Press were but a few of the jewels set in the crown of Rome that year. Among the gathered elite….probably none drew more attention than the top two decathletes in the world at that time: Yang Chuan-Kwang of Formosa (Taiwan) and the American world record holder, Rafer Johnson.  Great friends on and off the field of competition….these two elite athletes were loved by their Coach Ducky Drake.adgdrgaxdgjlwfn
