EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the iconic moment when Pietri Dorando, the Italian marathon runner, bid farewell to the British public after his unforgettable performance in the 1908 London Olympic marathon. Despite being disqualified, Dorando's determination and spirit won over the hearts of thousands. In this snapshot frozen in time, we see Dorando departing Charing Cross station amidst a bustling crowd of well-wishers. The atmosphere is filled with jubilation as people cheer and wave their hats in admiration for this remarkable athlete. The image reflects both the excitement of an era gone by and the timeless emotions evoked by sporting triumphs. Dorando himself stands tall amongst a group of men, exuding happiness and gratitude. His infectious smile symbolizes not only his personal victory but also represents a celebration of human resilience and perseverance. The composition beautifully captures various moods and expressions within this historic scene: busy railway carriages passing by, people bidding their farewells with joyous faces, all united in their shared appreciation for sportsmanship. Bernard Grant's masterful lens transports us back to that glorious August day in 1908 when sport brought nations together. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder that even though decades have passed since then, moments like these continue to inspire generations through their power to unite us all under one common love - sport.
