championships and became the
only runner in history to win eight
national track titles in seven days.
Representing the Manhattan
Athletic Club, Myers crossed the
Atlantic in 1881 to prove to the
English that American clockers
weren't mad as had been sug-
gested in some British news-
papers. And show them he did.
He bettered his own 880 mark
and lowered the 440 record to
48.6. He also became the first
foreign runner to win a British
national track title. In all, be-
tween 1879 and 1884, Myers won
15 American, 10 Canadian and
three British national titles at
distances from 100 to 880-yards.
Myers had his first meeting with
Britain's great distance ace Walter
George in 1882 at the Polo Grounds
in New York. Although in ill
health, Myers won the 880, then
lost twice to George at three-
quarters of a mile and the mile
run. The two runners resumed
their rivalry in 1886 after both had
become professionals. This time it
was all Myers as he swept all
three events at Madison Square
Garden. The two met again in
Australia in 1887 with Myers again
the victor. 'Myers retired from
track in 1888 and drifted into
horse racing before he died in
1899.

With the outdoor track season
about to begin, and the Olympic
Games . only a year away, we can't
help but wonder if the American
Jewish community will ever again
produce a Lon Myers or an Abel
Kiviat. These two men—one who
competed almost 100 years ago,
and the other more than 50—were
the last American Jews to make
it really big in track. They were
the Jim Ryuns and Martin Li-
quoris of their day.
Lawrence (Lon) Myers, one of
the great names of track history,
was born in Richmond, Va. in
1858. He began his track career
in New York City in 1887 and was
an almost instant success. A year
later he amazed everyone when
he became the first runner in
history to better 50 seconds for
440-yards and won three American
titles—the 220, 440 and 880-yards
—at the National AAU champion-
ships. In 1880 he established an
American record in the mile run;
set a new world record in the 880,
and tied the world mark for 100
yards. He bettered his AAU cham-
pionship record of the previous
year by capturing the 100, 220,
440 and 880 titles, all on the same
day. A week later he repeated
these triumphs at the Canadian

The last great American Jewish
runner was Abel Kiviat. A New
York City high school champion,
Kiviat won his first national title
in Canada in 1909 while represent.
ing the famous Irish-American
Athletic Club. He did extremely
well running indoors and in 1911
became the first to win two na-
tional indoor titles in the same
year. The Olympic Games were
scheduled for Sweden the follow-
ing year and Kiviat was determin-
ed to make the team. At the East-
ern Olympic trials in Boston he
set a new world mark of 3:55.8
for the 1,500-meter final. He grab-
bed the lead on the final lap and
held it until a tall Englishman,
Arnold Strode-Jackson, nipped him
at the tane. "What was I waiting
for?" Kivat said later, "It was the
only conservative race I ever ran
in my life."
He repeated his indoor double
championship in 1913 and estab-
lished a new world indoor mark
of 4:18.2 that same year. In a
career that lasted until 1925, Ki-
viat won nine U.S. national indoor
and outdoor championships and
three Canadian titles. For many
years he has served as an official
at New York City track meets.
Myers and Kiviat were great
ones. Will we ever see their like
again?
