Winter coached world record breaking sprinters Tommie Smith, Lee Evans, John Carlos, Ray Norton, Dennis Johnson, and Hal Davis. At one time his athletes held all ten world records for sprinting events. Bud was the first person to prove the idea that the key to winning in sports was not 100 or 110 percent effort. “Far more can be achieved with a four fifths effort” he said and he proved it. Because of the impact of Bud Winters on the coaching of sprinters, San Jose State was given the name “Speed City”.
