  • Who were t hey ? ...

    The first athlete who was a postman ate apple
    that were not ripe and had to abandon because
    of stomach cramps.
    Our second hero drank brandy 10 km before the
    end of this very epic Olympic marathon and won.

    Who were they?

    Would the apple guy be the Cuban at the turn of the century? Carval or something similar in '04 or '08. Strychnine, eggs, & brandy were given to many to combat heat and dust the same year, and someone rode in a car, but I cannot recall any other names besides Americans Newton & Hicks, but have no idea of their finish places. Is this on the right track?
