  • Description

    Marty Liquori, for several years America's top indoor middle-distance runner, began a spectacular comeback on January 25, when after spending a year on the sidelines after a serious heel injury he broke the four-minute barrier to come second in the famous Wannamaker Mile in Maddison Square Gardens. After months of careful training at Villanova University, Florida, he hoped to return to top form by winning the Olympian 1,500 metres at Maddison Square Gardens' during the most important meeting of the year, the Olympic Invitational Track Meet on Friday (8 February). He has won this race four times before. If he can win this time against top-class International competition, he is likely to set his sights on the 1976 Olympics. During his lay-off, however, he has been showing considerable interest in professional athletics and he may well be tempted to leave amateur competition long before the Olympics begin.
