Biography

Steve Riddick graduated from Norfolk State in 1974 and then ran for the Philadelphia Pioneers. After being eliminated in the semi-finals of the individual 100 m in Montréal, he won a gold medal as the anchor man on the relay team. In 1979 he was also a member of the gold medal winning team (with Harvey Glance and the non-Olympians Mike Roberson and Cliff Wiley) at the Pan American Games. Riddick never featured in the major domestic championship meets; at the NCAA he was second in 1973 and third in 1974, and at the AAU he finished fourth four times.

Later in life, Riddick fell on some difficult times, and in 2007 he was convicted of conspiracy, bank fraud, and money laundering, and sentenced to federal prison for five years and three months for counterfeiting checks.

Personal Bests: 100y – 9.3 (1973); 100 – 10.05 (1975); 200 – 20.31 (1975).
