Pamela Jiles

Track & Field


Pamela won a silver medal in the 1976 Olympics anchoring the 4 X 400 relay. She also won two gold medals in the 1975 Pan Am Games in the 100 meter dash

and 4 x 400 relay and was a silver medalist in the 200 meters.


Pam lives in Alameda, where she moved after her home in New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Luckily, Pamís sister Giselle had

many family photos and memories, including Pamís Olympic silver medal, which Pamela gave to Giselle after winning it in 1976. Despite the devastation caused

by the storm, Pam says she is lucky because it brought her closer to her sister and the beautiful setting of Northern California.
