One moment in Time

This was 1988. This was really when the sports bug hit me. I was 9.

Javier Sotomayor, Greg Louganis, Gabriela Sabatini, Steffi Graf, Kristin Otto, Carl Lewis, Ben Johnson, FloJo Joyner, Naim Soulemanoglu, Daniela Silivas, Yelena Shushounova, Matt Biondi, Christian Gross, Sergei Bubka, Evelyn Ashford, Petra Felke, Janet Evans, Rosa Mota…. and Whitney Houston.

1988.

A more innocent times.

The Olympics.

 

Whitney is no more. “One moment in time”, will live.
