About

He was obsessed with running faster than any man before him. Obsessed with running the perfect race. From one of the smallest nations on earth, he came to the greatest Olympic event ever staged - Berlin, 1936

In front of the Fuhrer and 120 000 frenzied spectators he ran a race that carried him beyond perfection to despiar, a despair that was to end with  his dark and lonely death in a New York subway station.
