Born on an Army base in Germany (his father was an Army Doctor stationed in BRD), and 24-time national champion, Shorter captured the Olympic Gold Medal in 1972 in the city of his birth (Munich). It was this performance that inspired the distance running boom in the U.S. He went on to claim the Silver Medal in the 1976 Olympics and was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 1984. Frank is one of the single most highly regarded runners of all time... an authority on the movement to create WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) and someone who our Warrior Runners both young and old will enjoy meeting, running with... and spending time around at each base we visit.
