We had the wonderful opportunity to interview Mr. Richards thanks to his son. They remain pole vault gold for all that take the time to listen to his stories. A true elite athlete, legend, and gentleman.

Robert Eugene Richards (born February 20, 1926) is an American retired athlete, minister, and politician. He made three U.S. Olympic Teams in two events: the 1948, 1952, and 1956 Summer Olympics as a pole vaulter and as a decathlete in 1956. He won gold medals in pole vault in both 1952 and 1956, becoming the only male two-time champion in the event in Olympic history
