Marty Liquori

Marty Liquori in 1970 (Wikipedia)

Martin Liquori (born September 11, 1949) is a retired American middle distance athlete. Liquori rose to fame when he became the third American high schooler to break the four-minute mile by running a 3:59.8 in 1967, three years after Jim Ryun first did it.

Liquori made the U.S. Olympic team in 1968 as a nineteen-year-old freshman. He reached the finals of the 1,500 meter run but suffered a stress fracture and finished 12th. He was the youngest person ever to compete in the final. After he retired, he was a network TV commentator for track and field events.

According to IMDb, Marty is credited with acting in one film. NFT’s “Testimony” is the only theater credit we can find for him (acting or lighting).

He is an accomplished jazz guitarist, and performed regularly at Jazz clubs in Gainesville, Florida where he lived in the late 2010’s.
