James Leo DILLION

After winning the 1951 NCAA discus title for Auburn, Jim Dillion took the 1952 AAU title, beating both Sim Iness and Fortune Gordien. The following week he finished third, behind those two, at the Finals Trials. At Helsinki, he beat Gordien, but Iness won the gold, and Adolpho Consolini of Italy edged Dillion for the silver. Dillion later became an airplane mechanic and private pilot. His hobby was to rebuild planes and flying them with his son, Jimmy. He also restored cars, using his mechanical skills.
