By JIM DWORMAN
In track and field, hard work is one ingredient that separates the good from the.
rest of the crowd. A runner can compete on talent alone, but he may not improve
J o l i SO or excel without putting in long hours of practice.
Shelby Johnson understands this philosophy and for the co-captain of the
Michigan track-team it has resulted in great improvement. After two and a half
u r d years of average performances, Johnson has broken through the motivation
barripr'to become one of the top hurdlers in the Midwest and has a chance to ad-
vance Zo the national level of competition.
"SHELBY REALLY didn't come into his own until this year," said Michigan
1i 1 o p e coach Jack Harvey. "He got real serious in training this fall. Up until then he
didn't have the burning desire to be in
the class of national competition."
m in Johnson agrees with Harvey's
becom ing assessment but believes his increased
effort began last spring when he broke
his wrist in a meet against the Chicago
Track Club. "After that meet I had to
