“Hansen Donates Shoes to Museum of World Athletics”
Imagine my joy and gratitude to be honored in this way. I am grateful to my coach, Laszlo Tabori for making all things possible throughout my running career. I am grateful to my late husband. Tom, who had the forethought to retire my world record shoes and preserve them for future use. I am ever so grateful to Chris Turner and World Athletics for giving my shoes a permanent home. A special thanks to Simon Turnbull for writing my story exquisitely. My heart is full.
I cordially invite you to visit the Virtual Museum of World Athletics. I believe this represents the first sport to have a virtual version of their brick-and-mortar museum. It is wonderful to browse through this site. Link: https://www.worldathletics.org/heritage/mowa
