The marathon makers by John Bryant( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the 1908 Summer Olympics in London, one of the contenders in the marathon was the diminutive Italian Dorando Pietri. After leading the pack at a grueling pace, Pietri staggered into the stadium, turned the wrong direction, and fell five times, after which two officials took him by the arms and brought him across the finish line. The American team lodged a complaint, and as a consequence, Pietri was disqualified and his first place medal went to the American Johnny Hayes. But the glory went to Pietri, who eventually became an international celebrity and received a silvered cup from Queen Alexandria for his efforts. After the race, Hayes and a Scottish sprinter, Wyndham Halswelle, were dragged into a dispute surrounding the race's official outcome, and a fierce war over sporting superiority between the United States and the British Empire resulted. The battle rapidly spilled over into politics and ethics, with allegations of cheating, drug-taking, and unprofessionalism levied by both nations. Bestselling author John Bryant delves into the lives of these three extraordinary men in a tale that stretches from rural Italy to Ellis Island, Broadway and beyond and explores the foundations of the modern sporting and marathon movements

Running the race : Eric Liddell Olympic champion and missionary by John W Keddie( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a continuing fascination in the life of Eric Liddell (1902-1945). He remains one of the best-known and best-loved of all British sportsmen. In the award-winning movie, Chariots of Fire (1981), his success in the 400m at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris was powerfully portrayed. He was known as the 'man who would not run on a Sunday' and captured the imagination of a generation by his Christian character and by sacrificing fame and fortune to become a missionary in China, before his passing in a Japanese internment camp in 1945. This book is not a full biography of Eric Liddell. It is largely a sporting biography which weaves in to it Liddell's background, Christian position and subsequent missionary work. The author is the leading authority on Scottish track and field history and is presently a Presbyterian minister in Scotland. He was acquainted with Liddell's first biographer, D.P. Thomson, to whom he gave some assistance in the production of the earliest full biography of Liddell (1970). Whilst the book is in the nature of a 'personal tribute, ' it is from one who can speak with some authority on both the sporting side and Christian aspects of Eric Liddell's life, as a Scotsman, a former athlete and rugby player, an athletics historian and an evangelical Christian

Born in Hammersmith, Seb Coe went from a secondary modern school and Loughborough University to become the fastest middle-distance runner of his generation. His rivalry with Steve Ovett gripped a nation and made Britain feel successful at a time of widespread social discontent. From sport Coe transferred his ideals to politics, serving in John Major's Conservative government from 1992 to 1997. However, perhaps his greatest triumph arrived in 2005, when he led Britain's bid to bring the Olympic and Paralympic Games to London. 'Run
