Hopkinton - Spirit of the Marathon

From "The Spirit of the Marathon," [the statue] of 1946 Boston Marathon winner Stylianos Kyriakides, the champion Greek runner whose victory helped bring food, medicine and world-wide attention to his famine-wracked country after World War II, and Spiridon Louis, his mentor and winner of the 1896 Olympic Marathon. The 10-foot high statue will be unveiled in Hopkinton in April 2006, the 50th anniversary of Kyriakides' victory, and will be located at the Mile One marker of the Boston Marathon route.
