    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.

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

    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.
