Riassunto: Hogan came late to athletics but his career thereafter was a brilliant series of victories. Self-trained for many years, He reached the peak of his athletic career after moving to England in 1960. Under the most bizarre of circumstances, Hogan won a gold medal in the marathon of the 1966 European Championships running in an English vest. Why the best Irish long-distance runner of his generation was obliged to declare for England is an extraordinary story. That he was successful under these circumstances only adds to the legend of the `Mad Irishman'. Combative, outspoken, colorful and driven to succeed, he battled a cruel bureaucracy in Irish athletics. This is one man's inspiring story of overcoming the odds and realizing his dream.
