Anyone remember Mark Spitz?

Anyone remember Mark Spitz?
I don't know what made me remember him, since it''s 44 years ago and these Olympics got infamous because of the attack on the Israeli team. But for some reasons I can't get him out of my head right now. He kept me glued to the screen when I was still a little child.

I was in high school then. He was pretty heavily promoted.

I remember my mother and me holding thumbs for him, although we were rather local patriots when it came to sports.

I remember his name being attached to Olympic swimming back in the 80s but not much more than that. Not a huge fan of the Olympics.

His real highlight were the '72 Olympics. That I remember him at all says something, since I never been a fan of swimming.

Never heard of him.

I guess the age difference is showing.

Didn't he become a dentist or something?

Such is the value of swimming!

Which doesn't pay badly. But I didn't look up what became of him on purpose, since this is memory lane for me.

One of my sisters had a poster of him. When she wasn't around I'd stare at it.

Woot !
