Overview
 
The 1924 Olympic athletics competition was held at the [Stade Olympique de Colombes], slightly north of Paris. The track was 500 metres and this was the last time that Olympic competition would be contested on other than a 400-metre track. The 1924 Olympic Games. But the actual star of track & field was the great Finnish distance runner, [Paavo Nurmi]. Nurmi won both the 1,500 metres and 5,000 metres, running those finals within an hour of each other. He also won the individual cross-country and ran on winning Finnish teams in the cross-country and 3,000 metre team races, winning five gold medals in all, still the most won by any athlete in track & field at a single Olympics.
