What I find striking when I read about Tim Wood is that those who mention that they actually know him, always make a point of stating what a really nice person he is.

Peggy Fleming used her Olympic victory as a platform for becoming one of the sports great ambassadors. Just think what Tim Wood would have been able to do had he been the official Olympic champion - probably as much as Dick Button.
