A classmate of Tom Dakin saw the 14.0 piece, let Tom know about it and Tom got in touch with me after reading it. That resulted in several email exchanges and phone calls. I’m grateful for Tom’s time. And particularly, his amazing and brutal honesty when discussing the events in his athletic career and life.
All of that has been summarized in an addendum to the original piece which can be found here:
