Olympic Games 1904 - St. Louis

The marathon was held on August 30, 1904. The lenght of the race was 40 kilometers and 32 athletes from 4 nations competed. The American marathoner Lorz stopped running because of exhaustion after nine miles. His manager gave him a lift in his car for the next eleven miles, after which it broke down. Lorz then continued on foot back to the Olympic stadium, where he broke the finishing line tape and was greeted as the winner of the race. It was disqualified. Thomas Hicks is the official winner of the marathon, followed by French athlete Albert Coray (the International Olympic Committee medal database still refers him incorrectly as American).
