His third entry is listed under "unknown event", but the title "Calciatore II" is like the 'Calciatore I" for which he received an honourable mention under "Statues", so I class it also as such.

When he won the 1976 gold medal, he was still unsure of his career and thought the running would distract him from his studies. 118 consecutive wins later, in 1986, he said 'I never thought I would be in track and field this long'. He is no doubt one of the surest non-triple gold medalists because of the Moskva boycot.
He was chosen to pronounce the Olympic oath at Los Angeles, where he stumbled over his words, if not his hurdles.
He earned a BS degree in physics and engineering, and used his expertise in developping the dynamics of his hurdling. He took only 13 steps between the hurdles.
He was world champion in 1983 and 1987.
