FLAGSTAFF-Inspiration, endurance, persistence and determination: these are just a few of the qualities that stand out in the life and legacy of Olympic medalist and runner Billy Mills. Fortunate for many northern Arizona running enthusiasts and residents, Mills will be in Flagstaff to present a free presentation at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Prochnow Auditorium on the Northern Arizona University (NAU) campus. Mills, Oglala Lakota, will share his story of persistence as the only American to win a gold medal in the 10,000-meter race in the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, as well as his journey of overcoming prejudice and alienation.
