Gold Medal Olympian Billy Mills is most remembered for his stunning upset victory in the 10,000 meter race at the 1964 Olympics. Mills, who studied at both Haskell Indian Nations University and the University of Kansas, has been back in the state the past few days. As KPR's Greg Echlin reports, Mills was in Brown County yesterday (MON), attending a ground-breaking ceremony for a running trail that will bear his name.
