New Voices At Madison Square Garden

Gil Dodds is the minister’s boy who came out of Nebraska to step off the fastest mile ever run on an indoor track. Time 4.10.6. At the end of a race the crowd wondered when he picked up a microphone to acknowledge their applause and said: “I thank the Lord for guiding me through the race, and seeing fit to let me win. I thank Him always for His guiding presence.” The rafters of Madison Square Garden must have trembled; these were new words there. “I don’t win those races. God wins them. You see, God has given me all I have. I have one great lack. I didn’t have the one thing the coaches say a long-distance runner simply must have. I couldn’t sprint at the end of the mile. But God took care of that. In place of the sprint he gave me stamina.” And that is correct. Dodds sprints the whole distance. He sets a killing pace all the way.
