  • Who is he?

    In his first major championship, he participated in the 4x400 relay. He went on to become the world record holder at 10000 meters.

              So who is this person? Olympic marathon champ whose first OG appearance was in the 4x400.

                That is an easy one. Mamo Wolde ran the 4x400.

                  You're correct on both counts: Wolde and too easy.

                  Any confirmation or rejection of my Brick Muller claim?

                    Richard is right - it is Mamede, he ran in the relay in the 1971 European Champs (as well as in the individual 800).

                      What 4 different events did Mamede contest in various OIympic Games? (He was in three different OG and never had the same combination of events in any.)
