Gerald Ashworth won a gold medal at the 1964 Olympic Games, running the second leg of the United States’ 4 x 100 Relay Team with Paul Drayton, Dick Stebbins, and Bob Hayes. The victory
set a new World record for the event—39.0.

In 1961, Ashworth’s 6.1 mark tied the World record in the 60-Yard Dash. He set the World record for 100 Yards, 9.4, in 1962, and matched it again in 1964.

The Dartmouth College sprinter was ranked seventh indoors in the
World in 1963 and eighth outdoors in 1964 in 100 Yards and 100 Meters distances.
