Great story and I had never heard of him either. The sad thing is that blacks physically mature faster than whites. They hit puberty quicker than any other race and develop muscles, speed, etc a litte faster than other races. So the point I'm trying to make is that Clyde Peach gave up track too soon. Most white sprinters don't really start to peak until their mid 20's or even late 20's. Yes there are exceptions like Lemaite and Shirvington but this is the case the majority of the time. My honest opinion is that Clyde Peach would have got faster and maybe broken the world record with another 4 to 6 years of training. Either way what a story. Great guy and exceptional sprinter.
