Biography

Edward BATTEL

Battel was employed at the British Embassy in Athens in 1896 and competed despite the wishes of some fellow British residents of the Greek capital who believed that as a servant of the British ambassador he “was not a gentleman and therefore could not be an amateur”. Battel finished third in the road race despite a number of crashes. Nothing else is known about him and even his exact name is in doubt.
