Another Olympic Gold Medal Stolen, Mike Troy Offering Reward

TEMPE, Arizona, April 30. ACCORDING to an article on the site, Olympic gold medalist Mike Troy had a gold medal from the 1960 Olympics Games stolen recently.

"I had put the medal around a kid's neck, turned my back to talk to another group, and the next thing I knew the medal was gone," he told "I am devastated it is gone; I should have been paying better attention. I can just imagine a parent finding the medal in the back of their stroller and wondering whom it belongs to."

Troy won a pair of gold medals at the 1960 Olympics held in Rome. He won the 200 fly, and was a member of the gold-medal winning 800 freestyle relay at the meet. Troy also is an International Swimming Hall of Famer, and has been inducted into the Indiana University Hall of Fame.
