The details (from wikipedia)


Roberto Frinolli (Rome, 13 November 1940) is a former athlete Italian specializing in the 400 metres hurdles.


Born in Garbatella, he attended athletics school, first trying the 110 metres hurdles before settling on the 400 hurdles. He went on to become the Italian national champion six times, 1963-1966 and 1968-9.

He qualified for three Olympics, 1964 thru 1972, making it to the final in 1964 and 1968. At the 1968 Olympics, he ran his personal best of 49.14 in the semi-finals, placing him in the center of the track for the final. He ran an even pace with eventual winner David Hemery who was in the process of setting the world record. Frinolli paid for that hard early pace, struggling home in last place.

Frinolli was ranked number one in the world in 1965 and 1966. He won the 1966 European Championships and twice at the World University Games. He is the father of Giorgio Frinolli.
