On August 28 th , 1977 a mini-marathon was held in New York’s Chinatown. While little information is available about the marathon aside from the above photographs taken by Emile Bocian, it appears that the marathon started and finished on Mott Street and saw runners running across the Manhattan Bridge. According to the sparse notes taken by Bocian, a known sensationalist, one of the runners was 67 year old Chan-Ling Wang that Bocian writes was “China’s most famous marathon runner.”
1977年8月28日,在纽约唐人街举行了一场小型马拉松比赛。除了上述由摄影师Emile Bocian (包信)拍摄的照片以外,几乎找不到任何关于这个赛事的其他报道。从照片上看,这个小型马拉松赛事的起点和终点都在华埠的勿街,也看到跑者穿过曼哈顿大桥。包信是一位当时小有名气的煽动者,根据他零落的笔迹,一位67岁的跑者Chan-Ling Wang (王长岭)被他描述为“中国最著名的马拉松跑者”。
