Edward Hart

Edward ("Eddie") James Hart (born April 24, 1949) is a former American athlete, winner of gold medal in 4x100 m relay at the 1972 Summer Olympics.

Born in Martinez, California, Eddie Hart won the NCAA championships in 100 yd in 1970 as an University of California student.

At the US Olympic Trials in 1972, both Hart and Reynaud Robinson repeated the world record, running the 100 m in 9.9 seconds, and were favored to win the race at the Olympic Games. But at München, they both were eliminated in the 100 m race because their coach, Stan Wright, unknowingly using an outdated Olympic schedule to determine the starting time of their quarterfinal heat, failed to deliver them to the track on time.
