The world's greatest sporting occasion has historically been filled with unusual occurrences and peculiar situations. In 1908, Dorando Pietri was stripped of his gold medal in the marathon after he was helped over the finish line by over-anxious officials. From "Eric the Eel" of Equatorial Guinea—the slowest swimmer in the history of the games—to Fred Lorz, who was disqualified after it was discovered that he had hitched a lift in a car during his marathon run, this is an exciting collection of the most humorous and jaw-dropping stories from the Olympic games.
