RIP Rafer Johnson; for all of you kids out there, one of the greatest athletes of his time, winning the gold medal in the decathlon in 1960. Oh, and he also subdued Bobby Kennedy’s alleged assassin. A true American hero.

On Rafer Johnson from LA84 Foundation: “Our sense of loss is only eclipsed by the gratitude we will always feel for the opportunity to work so closely with Rafer. He embodied the Olympic Movement,” said Peter Ueberroth, CEO of the 1984 Summer Olympics.

“There are so many lives he touched and improved as a true hero who cared deeply for others. Each day we are focused on honoring his legacy. His DNA will always be embedded in our work. Today, we offer our love and support to his wife Betsy and family.”
