On Seiichi Nishiji san
Seiichi Nishiji leading out reigning World Champion Italian (Maspeis?) in the 1960 World Cup (Seiichi lost this race by a very narrow margin). The Italian ended up taking 5 or 6 consecutive world sprint titles which held until Koichi Nakano broke his record in the '80s on his way to taking 10 world sprint titles.
