There is a story of the Battle of Marathon around 490 B.C. King Darius of the Persians,

The Athenians were outnumbered by the Persians. The city-states that surrounded the

Athenians in Marathon offered no help. But they caught the Persians by surprise by

running the full length of the plain and catching the Persians unorganized. They struck the

front, and the sides. Because of the surprise and suddenness of the attack, the Persians

fled to their ships. The Athenians won and wanted to send word back to Athens so they

could prepare for an attack by the Persians at sea. A man named Pheidippides was sent

because he was the best runner. He ran the whole distance, about 26 miles, this could

not be done without training and discipline. When he arrived he was only able to say one

word, before he collapsed and died, that word was VICTORY, NIKE.
