IU hall of famer Campbell dies

Milt Campbell, an inaugural member of the Indiana Athletics Hall of Fame, died on Friday. The 1956 Olympic Gold medalist in the decathlon was an NCAA champion in the hurdles for Indiana and a standout for the football team as well for two years at IU. Campbell played professional football for seven years and earned an Olympic silver medal in the decathlon in 1952 as a rising high school senior.

"The passing of Milt Campbell brings sadness to all who knew him and many who didn't but knew of his tremendous contributions to the sport of track and field, Indiana University and society as a whole," IU track and field coach Ron Helmer said in a statement. "I count myself among the second group and also count myself lucky to be directing a program that includes Milt Campbell and many others like him as a part of our incredible history. It is also important to note that at a time of great civil unrest in our country Mr. Campbell persevered to become the first African-American to win a gold medal in the Olympic decathlon after having found a home and support for his pursuit here at Indiana University. It is with sadness but great pride that we note and honor his passing."
