RIP Jon Hendershott, one of the best journalists of the Bible of the Sport has sadly passed away. Enjoy this piece from his friend John Geer...

Jon Roy Hendershott, part of Track & Field News for more than 50 years, died peacefully on Monday at the age of 71 from complications from a stroke he suffered at his home in Salem, Oregon, on Sunday.



If you ever read T&FN, you knew his name. Track was his life and he lived it to fullest. He enjoyed people and often said, "Every person has a story to tell." He was right and boy did he tell some stories. Probably too many to count.
