A contented Deena Kastor is pictured above after receiving her marathon bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. The American, who was 8th at the 30km mark, produced a late burst to overhaul the flagging Ethiopian Elfenesh Alemu and move into the bronze medal position. It was the first Marathon medal that the USA had won since Joan Benoit's victory at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.
