"Yet Latimer tells one ‘94 Steamboat story illustrative of how a quiet man may still be noticed for a quiet deed. “Lameck Aguta had broken away with 200m to go, and then veered off course at a road junction,” relates Latimer. “Benson, who was running in second place, about 50m behind Lameck, waited for Lameck to be quickly redirected back on course and let him win by one second, refusing to take advantage of Lameck’s misfortune. Benson told us he thought Lameck deserved to win. Great sportsmanship, and a measure of the gentle, kind side of Benson.”"
