Jim McKay: "They've All Gone"

The world of sports lost legendary announcer Jim McKay this week. He was 86 years old. He is perhaps best known for his marathon performance during the Munich Olympics massacre and his final remark "They're all gone" referring to the murdered Israeli Olympians. The calmness, composure, dignity and class he displayed not only at that particular time but throughout his career is what he will be remembered for. He is most recalled for his years with ABC's Wide World of Sports. However, his first love was horse racing and he anchored many of those events, including the triple crown events. Yes Jim McKay, you brought us "the thrill of victory" and you taught us "the agony of defeat." We thank you for enhancing this world of sports we love so much in your own special, dynamic and enlightening way.
