Abebe Bikila, Cliff Young, And Born To Run Review

September 23, 2009

I while back I came across the incredible story of Abebe Bikila and Cliff Young.  Both runners that truly challenged what people thought was possible.

This video highlights Abebe Bikila who managed to win an Olympic marathon… barefooted.  Not only that, but he managed to repeat his gold medal 4 years later.

Cliff Young managed to not only finish a 543.7 mile race, but revolutionize the running technique f0r years to come, all at the age of 61!  This article is a great read about Cliff and his incredible story.  Also, here is a video that talks about him and interviews him a bit.

Now as Leslie Wu had mentioned previously Born to Run seems to be a “must read for every athlete”, and here’s the review to back that up.
