Great Olympians

Non-competing Olympians


Are classed as Olympians any athlete who "entered the field of play". In rare cases, their team is eliminated before they actually performed. This is especially possible in Relay races, if a previous athlete drops out of the race. Here are the times this occured:
  1. (8000) Francisco Villota (ESP/PEL/1900)
  2. (8000) José de Amezola (ESP/PEL/1900)
  3. (4) Knowles McGill (CAN/BIA/1968)
  4. (0.01) Kebede Bedasso (ETH/1972) (uncertain)
