Former Pitt track and football star Herb Douglas recently met up with gymnast Gabby Douglas. The duo are not related, despite the same last name, but they share much in common. Herb is the oldest living African American Olympic medalist (a bronze in the long jump), while Gabby became the first African American to win Olympic gold in the all-around competition in gymnastics. Both accomplished these feats in the London games -- 64 years apart. writer Brian Cazeneuve documented the historic meeting.
