Can anyone tell me how long Dorando Pietri took to complete the marathon in the 1908 Olympics?
I know it a bizarre question - I'm writing an article comparing Pietri's effort to that of modern-day runners and can't find out his time despite scouring the depths of the Internet.
It's probably because the poor fellow was disqualified after collapsing five times and being helped by officials on his way to the line. Or maybe they didn't / couldn't record the times in those days.
Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
