    It was at the 1956 Games in Melbourne that French runner Alain Mimoun finally became Olympic champion, winning gold in the marathon. A friend and rival of the great Emil Zatopek, he had finished second three times in Olympic races behind the “Czech locomotive”: in the 10,000m at the 1948 Games in London, then in the 5,000m and 10,000m at the 1952 Games in Helsinki ©Keystone
