Ali , 'I'm The Greatest'


Zatopek, the 'Czech Locomotive'

Episodes of 'Distances'


Going the distance
With great Muhammad Ali
You'll be the champion!

Long distance runners
Zatopek, Snell, Africans
Wonder stamina!

Keep a safe distance
From swindlers,hustlers and crooks
Lest you’ll be sorry!

  1. If we go the distance, we'll always be champions, no? The important thing, you seem to suggest, is that we don't give up. I won't!
