  • Who was he ? (5)...

    Tragically, this Olympic gold medalist was shot
    in a French bistrot, at Saint-Denis, France, in
    October 1959.
    He was a marathon runner.

      Noooo...
      He is still alive.
      I even called him a few years ago. I believe it
      wasn't his ghost...

          Yes, Rob, that was him.
          Almost forgotten and quite miserable, the 1928
          marathon Olympic Champion saidsomething like:
          " I don't want to inspire pity by being broke
          and badly dressed. This would ruin my golden
          Olympic pedigree..."
          He was sixty years-old then.
