Olympic Games 1948 - London

Etienne Gailly from Belgium dominated the marathon race most of the way and until almost the very last moments. He was the first to enter the stadium, but with 400 meters to go, Gailly fell down, exhausted, got up and fell again. It was like Dorando Pietri's dramatic finish forty years before. Cabrera and Thomas Richards of Great Britain managed to pass the staggering Gailly, Cabrera winning by 16 seconds ahead of Richards. The London Olympic Games were Cabrera's first major international tournament.
