FILE - This is a July 29, 1948 file photo of Ralph Craig, center, of Albany, N.Y., who won the 100- and 200-meter dashes in the 1912 Olympic games in Stockholm, and is a member of the U.S. Olympic Yachting team in the 1948 games, carrying the American flag in the parade of the nations at the opening of the Olympic games in London's Wembley Stadium. Athletes bought their own uniforms, and some their own food. They stayed in private homes, schools and military barracks. If eggs appeared on the training menu, it was a cause for celebration. When London hosted the Olympics in 1948, organizers did it on the cheap, and they made no apologies about it. (AP Photo/File)
