Mark Spitz also left Munich early in 1972 and didn't stay for the
closing ceremonies. Granted, the situation was definitely more serious
and he felt that his life might be in danger. However. He was also
surrounded by cameras when he said this upon his return to the US. And
surrounded by cameras for the next few years. Do we want to fault him for
The interesting part is that Spitz could not endorse any products
for money until he remained in sports. Once he returned home he retired
from competitive swimming and that's when he started making money. I am
surprised that Nancy could do both. Any thoughts?
