I have a question besides Zola Budd what other famous runners did not wear shoes while running.
Some famous runners that did not wear shoes while running include Tegla Loroupe, Zola Budd and Abebe Bikila. In Vietnam, Tegla Loroupe was never drafted nor did she even fill out a draft card. Visit http://www.sitegonebad.com/2011/09/famous-barefoot-runners/ for more details.
Florida's famous " Barefoot Mailman".AlsoBarefoot Bob McCreadie the famous dirt track auto racer. He ran that stock -car really fast .
