American long distance runner, a two-time Olympian, running the 10,000 metres at the 1956 and 1960 Olympics. He also was a two-time United States champion in the 6 mile run, the imperial equivalent and added a 3-mile championship in 1962 (though he actually finished second to New Zealander Murray Halberg). The diminutive 5' 5" (165 cm) Truex was called a seemingly tireless running machine.
At the age of 40, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The disease deteriorated his quality of life rapidly. He had to retire early, eventually seeking unconventional fetal brain transplant surgery in China. He died on 24 March 1991, aged 55.
