Strychnine I've seen used before in 20th Century athletics, I never knew of this incident.

All of this history is often intriguing.

The 1904 Olympics were originally scheduled for Chicago, but moved to St. Louis to allow St. Louis to have the "double", the world's fair and the Olympics like Paris had 4 years earlier. Olympic history is interesting and that may have even been during a time an Olympics could last 3 months.

Athens had an additional Olympics in 1906: but they came not to be called Olympics falling out of the proper time frame but the Intercalated games. We must remember, the Modern Olympics were still in their infancy.

The Marathon of 1908 is very famous in that Pietri Dorando, the leader, Dorando, for most of it, arrived in the London stadium and became dazed and exhausted and had to be carried, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1908_Summer_Olympics (see painting) and he did not win. Yet, in Olympics and Track and field lore, this is largely the landmark event of those Olympic games and set off a bit of a running boom way back then.

Mr Reiss says he has not been surprised by the victims. "People are much more discerning now about how they spend their money and you have to keep moving forward as a brand. If you don't have that sense of uniqueness or give customers what they want, you are going to struggle. You have to be adaptable and understand your customer. It's a tough world out there."
