Synopsis

During the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome the whole world was impressed by an Ethiopian who ran the marathon barefoot and won the gold medal. Overnight Abebe Bikila became a sports legend and a hero for his country and continent, as the first African to ever attain such a victory. Four years later, at the Olympic Games of Tokyo, he would be the first athlete to win two consecutive gold medals in the marathon, the hardest race of all. This soldier, the son of a preacher, is considered by many to be the best long-distance athlete of all time, but the story of his life is much more than an Olympic gold medal.
