    Paavo Nurmi Career

    He was nicknamed as Flying Finn or the Phantom Finn due to his dominance in distance running during the early twentieth century. Paavo Nurmi won 9 gold medals and 3 silver medals in his 12 events at the Summer Olympic Games, holding 22 official world records over distances ranging from 1500 metres to 20 kilometres.

    He remained unbeaten in 121 races over distances ranging from 800 metres to 5000 metres at the height of his career. Throughout his 14-year professional career, he was undefeated in cross-country and 10,000-meter races.

    Nurmi began to grow while serving in the military, achieving numerous national records on his way to making his international debut at the 1920 Summer Olympics. A silver medal in the 5000 metres preceded gold medals in the 10,000 metres and the cross country events for the athlete. Nurmi made history in 1923 by becoming the first runner to hold world records at the same time in the mile, the 5000 m, and the 10,000 m races, a achievement that has never been duplicated since. With only an hour between events, he broke new world records in the 1500 m and the 5000 m, and he won gold medals in both distances in less than 2 hours at the 1924 Olympics. 

    It appears that the heat in Paris had no effect on Nurmi's performance, as he won all of his events and came home with five gold medals despite the fact that Finnish officials had refused to allow him to compete in the 10,000 metres.

    In 1925 Paavo Nurmi was dealing with injuries and motivation issues following an exhausting tour of the United States and he found himself facing increasingly serious competition from long-time rivals Ville Ritola and Edvin Wide. Nurmi defended his 10,000 m title at the 1928 Summer Olympics, but he was defeated to the gold medals in the 5000 m and 3000 m steeplechase. After that, he concentrated on longer distances, setting world records in events like the one-hour run and the 25-mile marathon. He hoped to finish his career with a gold medal in the marathon, similar to what his idol Kolehmainen had accomplished.
