Which Way to the Olympics?

There's more than one path from Penn to participation in the Summer Games this year. Dr. Britton Chance (left), a 1952 gold medalist, has now in vented 'Runman,'a new training device being used by Olympic hopefuls. Campus Police Officer Michael Sandt and Sgt. Thomas Rambo (below right) are off to Atlanta as security volunteers. Graduate Student Jeff Pfaendtner (bottom of page) is one of the "light four" competing for the U.S. And from farther away, Penn Law alumna and bronze-plus-silver oar Anita De Frantz (below left) is on the International Olympic Committee and heads the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles.
