FARGO – Olympic gold medalist Billy Mills will speak at 7 p.m. Nov. 6 in the Memorial Union Great Room as part of North Dakota State University’s Native American Heritage Month festivities.
Mills won gold in the 10,000-meter race during the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo.
Mills was raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation, S.D., as part of Oglala Lakota, one of seven subtribes of the Lakota people.
He earned a track scholarship to the University of Kansas and later served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
was to be at the DHS gym speaking.
The coaches and guys involved sports were interested.
My dad did not promote after school sports or extra curricular
He believed we got enough physical activity working the farm, cattle,
hauling bales etc.
Perhaps also, I just was not interested in PE or playground athletics.
the last one chosen……… I had no depth perception. Lol
I sought individual sports which developed into
passion for riding horse, necessary to roundup cattle..
