  • Book Details

Abel Kiviat (1892-1991) was one of track and field's legendary personalities, a world record-holder and Olympic medalist in the metric mile. This book brings Kiviat's story to life and re-creates a lost world, when track and field was at the height of its popularity and occupying a central place in America's sporting world.


He died at ninety-nine, just months short of carrying the torch for the opening ceremonies of the Barcelona Olympics. Abel Kiviat, National Champion pays tribute to a remarkable athlete and the sport during its most dynamic and celebrated era.
