Boyd Gittins was an Olympic hurdler on the United States' 1968 Olympic team. He qualified for the Olympic team for the 440 yard hurdles despite competing in the national qualifying race in Los Angeles with pigeon droppings in his eyes. During his Olympic preparation, an adverse reaction to a mandatory smallpox vaccine caused a hamstring injury that forced him to withdraw from the Olympic competition two days before his race.
