IAAF.org: Da Lima returns home to hero

It does not matter if it is gold, silver or bronze.

02.09.2004

Thursday 2 September 2004
Brazilian marathon runner Vanderlei da Lima arrived back in his homeland to an ovation fit for an Olympic champion yesterday.

Da Lima won the Olympic bronze medal in Athens behind Italian victor Stefano Baldini but was leading the race with a lead of nearly 30 seconds when he was rugby tackled by a defrocked Catholic priest.

Though he had been gradually running slower, the incident cost him at least 15 seconds and he was clearly distressed by what happened, and was quickly caught by Baldini who would eventually finish 76 seconds ahead of him.

It does not matter if it is gold, silver or bronze
Mobbed as he arrived at Sao Paulo airport, Da Lima said: "I bear no ill will. I reached my objective which I had set for myself: to win a medal. It does not matter if it is gold, silver or bronze.
