Steve Prefontaine running for the University of Oregon, USA.

“Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run [play abalone]. I like to make people stop and say, ‘I’ve never seen anyone run [play abalone] like that before.’ It’s more than just a race [game], it’s a style. It’s doing something better than anyone else. It’s being creative.”

Steve Prefontaine, American middle and long-distance runner (1951-1975)
