KUTS Vladimir (1927-1975) Russia / Track and Field
When Vladimir Kuts entered the stadium in Melbourne in 1956 to run the 10,000 m final, the public booed him in reproach for the Russians' sending the tanks into Budapest.But the war of attrition that he fought against the Briton Pirrie to win the race won him the public's heart and they cheered him on to victory.The former navy gunner followed his first Olympic victory two days later with a win in the 5000 m. This time, the Australian crowd applauded non-stop from start to finish.
