Yes, about Zola. I too was outraged about the fall.So strange I was thinking about this the other day, she got her feet tangled up with a young South African named Zola Budd. I had a huge crush on Mary Decker and I was outraged. Only years later did I stop to think about how the incident affected Zola Budd, who I believe never fulfilled her potential as a distance runner.
I think once she started wearing running shoes she began to get a lot of injuries, too.
Also, I am wondering if Decker was taking some substances. IIRC she was caught for something but let off. Then she quit citing injuries.
