His mother, Mary Neumeister, is a former runner who studied at a Catholic Regional High School. She used to run half a mile in 2:12 seconds. The lady runner was trained by Calvin H. Walker, who was there to coach the boy’s team.
His mother, a young runner, wanted to excel in her track, but she could not due to scarce resources. To stay close to her profession, she became the manager of the boy’s track.

His father became seriously ill several months before Sydney’s Olympic run. His heart suddenly stopped pushing blood, and he had to get his heart transplant quickly. Because of this specific reason, Sydney’s parents couldn’t see her running live.
