RIP Robin Williams
“One of my favorite runners of all time was Abebe Bikila. He was an Ethiopian distance runner, and he won the Rome Olympics running barefoot. He was then sponsored by Adidas. He ran the next Olympics, he carried the f–-in’ shoes!”
– Robin Williams talking about Abebe Bikila‘s historic 1960 Rome Olympic marathon victory. Williams was a good high school runner with a 1:58 800 PR and mentioned running/marathons occasionally in his acts. In an interview, Williams said he thought that a sports movie should be made on Bikila.
