As we said yesterday, some of the biggest names in the sport in the modern era didn't even make our Ranking Records Countdown, including by far and away the most decorated track and field athlete Kansas ever produced. We focus on seven athletes in these short snapshots who between them made ten U.S. Olympic teams. We could write volumes about them!
So why didn't they make the Ranking the Records Countdown? Simple - they don't currently hold state records, or their records didn't make the Top Ten for the countdown.
Read on to find out who they are, where they rank on the Kansas all-time list and how some of them even reached celebrity status!
