Perfiles. Yiannis Kouros.


"Yiannis Kouros (born February 13, 1956 in Tripoli, Greece) is a Greek ultramarathon runner based in Melbourne. He is sometimes called the "Running God" or the "Pheidippides Successor". He holds every men's world record from 100 to 1,000 miles, from 200 to 1,600 km, and from 24 hours to 10 days. In 1991, Yiannis starred as Pheidippides in the movie A Hero's Journey about the history of marathon running.

Yiannis has also contributed many literary and musical works, including over 1,000 poems (several of which appear in his book, Symblegmata (Clusters)), and the book The Six-Day Run of the Century.

Tributes to Yiannis come from the world over, including from the Indian ultrarunner Arun Bhardwaj who named his son Yiannis.
