LONDON (AP) - Harrison Dillard is back in London.
Dillard, the oldest living 100-meter Olympic champion, returned to the British capital for the games, only this time not as a lanky kid from Cleveland who came out of nowhere to win the gold in 1948.
Britain's Foreign Office honored the 89-year-old American in London today and allowed Dillard to hold the 1948 Olympic torch again.
Dillard botched the hurdles that year but came back to win in the dash.
