The Wizard of Foz September 11, 2018 by Tisha Oehmen Bob Welch the author the new book The Wizard of Foz, spoke at our Rotary Club today. Four lessons we can take from Dick Fosbury: 1. Imagination – in mid air in Grants Pass he lifted his butt up and developed a new way to jump. 2. Desperation – in desperate times we come up with amazing solutions. 3. Dedication – he couldn’t have quit many times along the way – but he didn’t. 4. Re-Education – the greatness of Fosbury came after the Gold when he became a regular full human being.
