I won with the javelin by 4 inches, picture to prove it, Feb. 6, 1971. The entire event took only 5 minutes before launch to come home. We were the only moonwalkers to engage in the Lunar Olympics. The lunar surface was like fine powder from billions of years of meteor bombardment. The 1/6 lunar gravity made it easy to hop around on the surface. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14.” In fine condition.
