Biography

In the program for the 1896 Olympics, the affiliation for George Marshall is shown as "Oxford" against his entry for the 800, but "University" is not specifically mentioned. For the 100, 400, and 1,500, his affiliation is shown simply as "London". His entry for the lawn tennis events, in which he did not actually play, is shown as being from the [Panathinaikos Club of Patras], which implied that he was a British resident in Greece and further research in British consular records has indeed revealed him to be the son of a British doctor who settled in Greece. Marshall had some local success as an athlete around his birthplace of Patras but was eliminated in the heats of the 100m and 800 m, the only two events in which he took to the track, in Athens.

Personal Bests: 100 – unknown; 800 – unknown.
