Francie Larrieu-Smith made five U.S. Olympic track teams in a span of 20 years. Her athletic career started before Title IX, and she discusses women's athletics before Title IX, setting the world mile record multiple times, and the experience of being the flag bearer for the United States in the 1992 Olympics.
Our "Nine for Title IX" series celebrates 50 years of Title IX with nine episodes featuring women who impacted Texas sports. This is Episode Six and is sponsored by the TownePlace Suites, Waco Northeast. "Nine for Title IX" episodes are released each Thursday through June 23.
