My first association with Castro is a more pleasant one. Domingos Castro is the last man ever to get away from the pack in a long-distance track championship run. World Athletics Championship 1987, 5000 metres. Nobody took him seriously, but he almost held out to the end, being caught only by one of his pursuers and securing a silver medal.

He is not Cuban, though. He is Portuguese.
