Paavo Nurmi, the legendary Finnish long-distance runner, carried a stopwatch while racing to pace himself. During a qualifying race in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, Nurmi fell at a water jump and dropped his watch. Lucien Duquesne of France stopped, lifted his rival to his feet and helped him retrieve his watch from the water.
Rather than forge ahead, Nurmi ran the rest of the race by Duquesne's side and at the finish line offered the Frenchman first place. Duquesne declined.
To the men & women behind this bottle, our appreciation. My medal goes with you.
