Jean-Louis Ravelomanantsoa (born 30 April 1943) is a retired
Malagasy athlete who specialized in the 100 metres. At the 1964
Summer Olympics he was knocked out in the heats in both 100 and 200
metres. At the 1968 Summer Olympics he was again knocked out in the
heats of the 200 m, but reached the 100 metres final and placed
eighth. At these Games he also set his career best time of 10.18
seconds in a tail wind of 2.0 m/s. This is the current Malagasy
record. At the 1972 Summer Olympics he reached the semi-final of
the 100 metres and was knocked out in the heats with the Madagascar
4 x 100 metres relay team. His main claim to fame, however, at
least in Australia, is his status as the first of only two men to
date to have won the Stawell Gift, the country's most prestigious
professional race, running off the scratch mark, doing so in 1975.
The race is run over 120 metres, but entrants are handicapped
according to their competitive form, and most start at a mark a few
metres ahead of the start line. Jean-Louis also competed as a
sprinter in the U.S. events of the International Track Association
in 1972-73. ... More: http://booksllc.net/?id=12147939
