Abebe Bikila won the gold medal for the marathon in the 1960 Rome Olympics running
Bikila made headlines when he triumphed in Rome after being added to the Ethiopian team at the last minute.
A couple of hours before the race, Abebe decided to run barefoot, the way he'd trained for the race.
It paid off!
Bikila would go on to defend his marathon title at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
