Vol. 1 No. 35 From South Africa, scandal

Hi George

Thanks for the entertaining series in the 1956 Olympics.

As a matter of interest Neville Price represented South Africa in the broadjump. He was the first South African to have a scholarship at Oklahoma. He was followed by Hentie Kruger and the rest of us. Neville Price was expected to win a medal at those Olympics. but only managed a seventh place. On his return to South Africa he was banned from competing again. Rumour has it that he was shagging one of his female team mates and partying instead of maintaining team discipline. Times sure have changed.
