Here are some photos of the 1972 Olympic Trials in Eugene, some from Munich that same year and a variety of others featuring American runners in the pages of Leichtathletik the German Track and Field magazine during 1972 and several other years. Many of these are of events we've seen in American press but these are from different photographers from slightly different angles. If we don't get a Cease and Desist Order, we will continue posting more pictures from Leichtathletik featuring German runners and other Euros. Thanks to John Cobley for the loan from his collection.
