I was forwarded a link and it led me to a short trailer of a documentary of my old team mate, Nelson Vails. It turns out they are making a video of his life and need some contributions. Nelson is one of the good guys. I always enjoyed traveling and training with him. Always smiling, always happy. Here’s a link to the site and there is a place to click to contribute to help make it possible.
Indiegogo Campaign – Cheetah: The Nelson Vails Story trailer from stephane gauger on Vimeo.
Nelson is on a poster heading down to my basement. This was a Raleigh poster from 1984. Pretty great results from our team. Doesn’t even show Thurlow and Roy who won Olympic Bronze medals. That would be a total of two gold, one silver and two bronze Olympic medals from one domestic team. Pretty stellar.
