Here is a link to a great interview that Joe did with Track & Field News back in August 1985 – 35 years ago! Wow – how time flies!
The Greater Tulsa Reporter ran a nice story on Joe and his vaulting and coaching career in their March 2020 issue. Here’s a link to the article:
Thanks for the great turnout at Marlow’s 4th of July celebration. Joe saw a lot of old friends, neighbors and fans and renewed acquaintances with many friends from the Marlow area and signed many copies of his book. Thanks for the great response!
Joe Dial will be having a book signing of “The Sky’s the Limit – The Joe Dial Story” at Marlow’s annual 4th of July celebration. He will be at a booth in Redbud Park during the day. Please plan to stop by and say hi and visit with the former World and American Record holder in the pole vault. Hope many of his fans and neighbors can stop by. He also is planning to participate in the big 4th of July parade earlier on the 4th. See you there!
