(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $100.00
Sold Price: $312.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Tug Wilson's original glossy 6.75 x 5 first generation photo of Italian marathon runner Dorando Pietri mere moments before crossing the finish line at the London 1908 Olympics. Reverse bears pencil notations. In very good condition, with overall creasing, a partially detached upper left corner, and light silvering to the darker areas of the image. Despite being the first to finish, Pietri was disqualified for having received assistance from umpires and officials, who helped the runner to his feet after he had fallen a total of five times before the finish line, four of which occurred after he had entered the Olympic Stadium. Of Pietri’s total time of 2h 54min 46s, ten minutes were needed for that last 350 meters. American Johnny Hayes was ultimately declared the winner with a final time of 2:55:18.4.

From the Tug Wilson Estate.
