Mills (left) and Gammoudi at the 1964 Olympics William Mervin Mills (born June 30, 1938), also known as '''Tamakoce Te'Hila''', is an Oglala Lakota former track and field athlete who won a gold medal in the 10,000 meter run (6.2 mi) at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. His 1964 victory is considered one of the greatest Olympic upsets because he was a virtual unknown going into the event. He was the first non-European to win the Olympic event and remains the only winner from the Americas. A United States Marine, Billy Mills is a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Provided by Wikipedia
