Story


A champion long distance runner in Greece, Stylianos "Stelios" Kyriakides competing in the 1936 Olympics, but his career was halted in its tracks due to the Nazi occupation of his home country. After fighting for the resistance, the frail and emaciated man made his way to the U.S. and competed in the 1946 Boston Marathon, a race to which he was initially denied entry-doctors feared he would die while running, so weak was his condition.
