Abebe Bikila

Abebe Bikila was a marathon runner from Ethiopia who was a late inclusion to the team for the 1960 Rome Olympics. As he was a late inclusion, there were not enough gear for him, so he ran the marathon barefoot. He won. He subsequently won the 1964 Tokyo Olympic marathon, this time wearing running shoes.
