"Sprinkle liberal marathon doses of physiology, psychology, counseling, coaching, training, and research; then add the world's most authoritative statistics and most reliable history. The product that emerges is Professor David Martin and Roger Gynn's The Olympic Marathon, the most compelling, commanding volume ever published on this classic event."Stan SaplinHistorical EditorTrack & Field News "A truly great and inspirational work. More than any event, the marathon symbolizes the Olympic movement because the race, unlike any other Olympic event, had the same origins as the Olympic Games themselves. With love and respect, Martin and Gynn tell the story of the runners and their races. This book will be an inspiration to anyone who has ever thought about running a marathon. For those training for a marathon, follow this prescription: read one race account every day before running. Repeat as necessary."Tom DerderianAuthor of Boston Marathon: The First Century of the World's Premier Running Event "I expected a very good book, given the recognized prestige that David Martin enjoys among the athletic universe in the world, but the book bettered any expectations. It is a real jewel, both for the literature and the history of world athletics."Cesar MorenoMember, International Amateur Athletics Federation CouncilTechnical director, 1968 Mexico City Olympics Marathon


This history aims to capture the excitement and drama from the past century of marathon races since its inception at the 1896 Olympics in Athens. The authors present the race from both a physiological and social perspective. They offer a detailed narrative of how each race was run, biographical details of the top finishers and a map with descriptions of the actual race course.

Great Book for Runners 29. September 2001
Von Doulos - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you are a runner (especially a marathoner) you have to get this book. It goes through every marathon in Olympic history, giving each race history, events, course, statistics, etc. It is very thorough, while pacing itself to get in all the Olympic marathons into a single volume. And, it was written in an interesting and readable manner.
The competition and sport of the races themselves give a great basis for an exciting read.
If you are doing a research project (like I was) this was the only book I would recommend - or, at least the first book. I could not find a book anywhere that showed the 1960 Rome Olympic course. Martin and Gynn had it. In fact, their race course map was better than the map a friend obtained for me from the Italian Olympic Library (Federazione Italiana Di Ateletica Leggera).

Fantastic, encyclopedic, and detailed historical review. 23. Dezember 2000
Von Dr. Dan Benardot - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The authors, Martin and Gynn, have put together an unbelieveably detailed review of every Olympic Marathon in the modern era. The detail provided brings the excitement of each successive Marathon alive. The Olympic Marathon is, perhaps, the most grueling Olympic event, and the comprehensive coverage of each race makes the reader feel as if it's taking place before their very eyes. Read this book and you'll get a sense of the drama of the event, the personal history of the runners, and the historical setting of each race. The authors have even reconstructed old Olympic documents to trace the paths each Olympic Marathon took. The information in this book is truly encyclopedic, and the authors have given us with a wonderful sense of what this race is about. This book is a gem.

Excellent Description of The Olympic Marthons through 2000, Men and Women 27. April 2009
Von Daniel Hurley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Well done decent capsules on the Olympic Marathons up through the year 2000. The book contains very good descriptions of the contenders and the races as they unfold. Also contains a great collection of pictures such as Ron Clarke, who ran the 5K and 10K (medaled), leading the Tokyo marathon, finishing 9th. Beside the descriptions of the runners, the author includes the top finishers splits so you can see how they parried over the miles, includes a list of the top 10 finishers and the post race career of the gold medalist. The women of course join in 1984 when their first Olympic marathon comes into play. The stories, list of splits and finishers is just a great reference and the race descriptions are pleasant to read. One picture is so fitting and reminiscent of the seemingly bronze place finisher at the 2008 Olympics slipping to fourth in total helplessness on the last lap; there is an early picture of the leader of a race on the track running in the second lane on a curve while being passed on the inside by one and then a second runner, relegating the leader to bronze on that last lap and he appears, like the Ethiopian in 2008, to be defenseless.

David and Roger - 26. Dezember 2006
Von J. Elliott - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have known David and Roger since the 70's and have other books by them. They love running foot races and it shows. You can count that this will be the best researched and well written book. I was not disappointed. I dug in and read the book over a couple of weeks. If it is not in this book then it is an unproved rumor.
