GLSEN profile of Dr Tom Waddell on US National Running Day

From GLSEN Sports Project/Changing the Game:

Today is National Running Day.

Did you know Tom Waddell (1937 - 1987) was a decathlete on the 1968 United States Olympic team in Mexico City. He was also a gay man. He founded the international sporting event called the Gay Games, which began in 1982 and is held every four years. Thousands of LGBT and ally athletes from around the world participate in the Gay Games. Waddell originally called this event the Gay Olympics, but was sued by the United States Olympic Committee for using the word "Olympic" in the original name.
