NIYONGABO Vénuste (1969) Burundi / Track and Field
The absence of the Ethiopian Gebre Selassie, who chose to only compete in the 10,000 m race at the Atlanta games in 1996, enabled this runner from the tiny African country of Burundi to step on the highest stage of the podium after the 5,000 m event. This is quite a feat when one considers that Burundi had only been accepted in the Olympic circle three years earlier.
