COOL HUNTING

Nike + Contest Winner

by Ami Kealoha in Culture on 07 August 2006

Nikepluskitcontest

Our Nike + Contest generated hundreds of entries—most of them wrong. Nearly two-thirds named Fred Lorz, who was disqualified from the 1904 St. Louis Olympics for using a car (nice try all of you claiming it was a horseless carriage), but the winner (chosen at random from the correct submissions) is CH reader NL, who writes:

"Spiridon Belokas is the name of the Greek Marathon runner who was disqualified from a third place finish in the 1896 Olympics because of using a carriage for part of the race."

NL will receive an iPod Nano, the Nike+ Sport kit, a pair of Moires, and a free download of The Crystal Method's "Drive." Congratulations!
