Beschreibung

Abebe Bikila was the first black African to win an Olympic gold medal. He won the marathon running barefoot in Rome in 1960 and again, wearing shoes, in Tokyo in 1964, becoming the first person to win the most grueling of all human contests twice. Born in rural Ethiopia in 1932, Bikila became the focus of the country's ambition to raise their profile through sport and an figurehead for black African nationalism. Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2006.

Paul Rambali is a writer and broadcaster and was a rock journalist for the NME during the punk era and editor of The Face from 1980-1987. The author of two books about France and works including It's All True - In the Cities and Jungles of Brazil, a personal odyssey exploring issues of development and culture in the Third World, he also ghost-wrote Phoolan Devi, the autobiography of India's Bandit Queen, which has been published in 26 countries.
