This may have been discussed before - if so I apologize.

I just read Paul Rambali's book "Barefoot Runner", and found it interesting in many parts, especially those related to Niskanen and the political situation in Ethiopia. But there were so many factual mistakes re track (e.g Wolde placed 4th in the 1956 Oly 1500 m final), that one wonders how much of the work is close to fact and how much is imagined or fiction. Comments/clarifications are welcome.
