Hall of Fame for Moses

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana () -- Edwin Moses, the greatest 400-meter hurdler in history, who won two Olympic gold medals and set the world record four times, is among four athletes elected to the National Track and Field Hall of Fame.


Joining Moses in election Thursday were Kate Schmidt, the American record-holder in the javelin and two-time Olympic bronze medalist who is now battling ovarian cancer, and two deceased Olympic gold medalists -- Lillian Copeland and Cornelius Johnson.


Moses, 39, had unparalleled success in the hurdles, including winning 122 consecutive races -- 107 finals -- from 1977 to 1987. He also won two World Championships and three World Cups. He retired after winning a bronze medal in the 1988 Olympics.
