Kyriakides won the 1946 Boston Marathon to bring the world’s attention to the suffering Greek people crushed by the Nazis. He survived the massacre of Kalavryta in WWII and the Greek civil war to run Marathons and show that his people were still proud and strong.

This is a well-made video tribute to Kyriakedes by NBC shown before the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens
