Details

The only athlete to have won the 5,000m, 10,000m and Marathon at the same Olympic Games (Helsinki, 1952), Emil Zátopek only took up running at the age of 16. This biography describes his extraordinary achievements, his prominence in Czech national life, alongside fellow champion and wife Dana, and the cruel sidelining and humiliation he suffered when he fell out of favour with the Communist government.
