He was a reporter who happened to do sports, and he did them so very well. I think I remember him most, as all do, for his Munich work. However, one other piece he did, I think also in Munich, was his marathon summary. I know he had a hand in writing it, maybe all of it. That I don't know. When he talked about how you had to run a marathon, "by yourself, or not at all."
