Running with Pheidippides: Stylianos Kyriakides, the Miracle Marathoner (Sports and Entertainment)by Nick Tsiotos
Synopses & Reviews
Stylianos Kyriakides, a championship Greek marathoner, promised to win the 1946 Boston Marathon — not for glory but to bring the world's attention to the plight of his war-torn country.
Book News Annotation:
Greek-Americans, runners, sports enthusiasts, and those who are drawn to inspiring stories will be the audience for Tsiotos (a public school teacher in Boston) and Dabilis's (a journalist and editor at The Boston Globe) celebratory account of the Greek marathoner. Kyriakides won the Boston Marathon in 1946 under grueling circumstances and set a new record, but it was his determined activism in America for the relief of suffering in his homeland that made him a hero for his nation.
