Here is an interesting ad that appeals to the public to send money to support “girl” athletes in the upcoming 1980 Olympic Games. It turns out the money would not be necessary for these particular games, since the US would lead and participate in a boycott of them. Still its a great snapshot of history and I especially love the line about needing more training to keep up with those “girls from eastern Europe”.
