Results of the race above:
East German Olaf Beyer is an interesting character. Built like a horse, he ran down Coe and Ovett in the 1978 European 800 metre final which was held in Prague. As soon as he finished he didn't do the usual lap of honor or shake hands with his competitors, instead he went straight for the tunnel. This raised eyebrows especially as he was an East German.
Obviously, being German, I would like to add one race, the 1992 Olympics. German athletes seem to have a preference for Triathlon now, who knows when a German runner will make the podium again.
