    I am surprised that 400 hurdler Danny Harris has not been mentioned - sexual assault, I think. Not only did he have a couple Silvers (84 and 87) but he ended The Streak.

    Also, OJ did make an extended stay in prison.

    please, before you attach crimes—particularly something that serious—to somebody, have a better rationale than "I think."

    google suggests he was charged with (and I don't find any resolutin of the matter) with "inappropriate contact," which while as heinous as it might be, isn't assult.

    Belated mention of Jeffrey (formerly Lord) Archer, former Member of the British Parliament and bestselling novelist. He was a sprinter in the early 60s and made one appearance for GB. He was convicted of perjury which led to a 4 year sentence (serving 2) and him being stripped of his peerage.

    And of course, Bruce Jenner should have been put into prison for making Can't Stop the Music with the Village People.

    Also 2 years for fraud in 2000 for 64 year old Jeff Julian, NZ marathon runner.

    Edit
    Damn. Onset of senility. Working through the posts, I just discovered I made the same post May 2018.
