Encyclopedia > Andy Stanfield

Andrew William "Andy" Stanfield (December 29, 1927-June 15, 1985) was an American track and field athlete.

Andy Stanfield was born in Washington, D.C., but moved to Jersey City as a kid. At high school, he was already a talented athlete, excelling in the sprints and long jump. After his army service, Stanfield entered Seton Hall University in 1948. The following year, he won his first of a long list of national titles. His list includes six AAU titles (1949: 100 and 200 m, 1950: 60 y, 1951: long jump 1952: 200 m, 1953: 220 y) and nine IC4A titles (both indoor and outdoor).

Internationally, the 200 m was Stanfield's strongest distance. In 1951, he broke Barney Ewell's world record of 20.7, running 20.6 - in a 220 y race, which is slightly over 200 m. He would equal this performance twice, running 20.6 in 1952 and 1956. As the world record holder, he was not a surprise winner of the gold medal at the 1952 Summer Olympics, equalling the Olympic Record in the final. As a member of the American 4 x 100 m relay team, Stanfield won a second Olympic title. He attempted to defend his 200 m title in the 1956 Games, but lost it, finishing second to Bobby Joe Morrow.
