Hicham El Guerrouj In danger of becoming the greatest middle distance runner never to win an Olympic gold medal, El Guerrouj had won 84 of his 89 races at 1,500 meters or a mile since 1996 however At Atlanta 1996, he tripped and fell in the final, and in Sydney 2000, he placed second to Kenya's Noah Ngeny. El Guerrouj made glorious amends at Athens 2004, winning the 1,500 meters and 5,000 meters. Thus he became the first man since Paavo Nurmi, 80 years earlier, to succeed in that double.
