Special Events and Highlights
USA Track & Field Special Screening
Please join us on Wednesday, November 28 at 7:00pm-Coquina Ballroom D, for a special screening of Starting at the Finish Line: The Coach Buehler Story, a documentary by Amy E. Unell. The film features inspiring words from Al Buehler, the Duke and USTFCCCA Hall of Fame Olympic track coach who has continued to influence Olympians including Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Carl Lewis, Joan Benoit, Mary Decker and John Carlos. Coach Buehler teamed up with his best friend and former USOC President, the late Dr. LeRoy Walker, to effectively use the track as a place to create harmony among races, nations and gender. Currently, in his 58th year of teaching at Duke, Coach Buehler recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
