Born: 25 January 1951
Birthplace: Coos Bay, Oregon
Died: 30 May 1975 (automobile crash)
Best Known As: Oregon running legend and subject of the film Prefontaine.
Charismatic, handsome and brashly confident, Steve Prefontaine was one of the leading American distance runners of the early 1970s. He won seven NCAA championships while running for the University of Oregon from 1969-73 (three in cross-country, four in the three-mile race) and finished fourth in the 5000 meters at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Prefontaine set more than a dozen American records at distances from 2000 meters to six miles before his sudden 1975 death in a one-car accident in Eugene, Oregon.

Deus Bigelow.....at least he gave it a shot. He came in 4th in the Olympics...against the best in the world....He was no loser. He gave it his best and that makes him a winner.

What have you done? Since you are so quick to say Steve Prefontaine is a loser....what do YOU have to be proud of??
