Horace Ashenfelter III, who set a world record in winning the steeplechase at the 1952 Olympic Games, died Saturday in West Orange, New Jersey. He was 94.

Ashenfelter beat favorite Vladimir Kazantsev of the Soviet Union in a time of 8 minutes, 45.4 seconds. Ashenfelter was inducted into USA Track and Field's Hall of Fame in 1975.

They were half brothers. It is a little known fact that Jerry's actual mother was a car.

I actually had lunch with him one time. My uncle was a stand up comedian and was a friend. Very funny guy.
