Walter George was the sickly child who grew up to become the greatest athlete the world had ever seen. And not only was he the quickest runner over a range of distances, he lived fast too. His weakness was 'a beer, a cigar and a spree' and he gambled heavily. But this was the late 19th century and the world's first official amateur champion had no role models to emulate or coaching manuals to guide him. As a result, some of his escapades simply beggar belief.
