Publication Date: 7/25/2007

Featured in Sports Illustrated’s summer double issue is Dave Wottle, dean of admissions and financial aid at Rhodes. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich where Wottle won the gold medal in the 800 meters.

Wottle was known for wearing a white cap in his races. “As an admissions director, the hat-wearing hero of the 1972 Games tries to spot students with hidden potential,” writes Brian Cazeneuve in the article.
