History

Nurmi-The Incomparable – Strength Magazine – April, 1929

Early in January the public press carried an announcement to the effect that the one and only Paavo Nurmi had arrived in this country for a business and pleasure trip; the business being in line of duty of his connection with a Finnish auto concern and the rest (and principal part) being the little matter of running a few races. Well, we can’t say just how his visit will reflect upon the automotive end of Finland’s industrial life, but we can say emphatically that it is making lots of smoke on our own little indoor track meet on this side of the big drink.
