Such was the drama of that race, in which Dorando Pietri collapsed within sight of the finishing line when leading, that Conan Doyle led a public subscription campaign to see the gallant Italian, having been denied the gold medal through his disqualification, awarded a special silver cup, which was presented by Queen Alexandra. And the public imagination was so well caught by the event that annual races in Boston , Massachusetts , and London , and at future Olympics, were henceforward staged over exactly the same, mile , yard distance, the official length of the event worldwide to this day.
The London race, called the Polytechnic Marathon and originally staged over the Olympic route from outside the royal residence at Windsor Castle to White City, was first sponsored by the Sporting Life , which in those Edwardian times was a daily newspaper which sought to cover all sporting events, rather than just a betting paper for [horse racing]] and greyhounds that it became in the years after the Second World War. In France , L'Auto , the predecessor of L'Equipe , had already played an equally influential part in the sporting fabric of society when it announced in that it would stage an annual bicycle race around the country.
The Tour de France was born, and sports journalism's role in its foundation is still reflected today in the leading rider wearing a yellow jersey—the color of the paper on which L'Auto was published in Italy , the Giro d'Italia established a similar tradition, with the leading rider wearing a jersey the same pink color as the sponsoring newspaper, La Gazetta. The s and s saw a rapid growth in sports coverage, both in print and on broadcast media.
It also saw the development of specialist sports news and photographic agencies. For example, photographer Tony Duffy founded the picture agency AllSport in south London shortly after the Tokyo Olympics, and, through some outstanding photography such as Duffy's iconic image of the American long jumper Bob Beamon flying through the air towards his world record at the Mexico City Olympics and the astute marketing of its images, saw the business grow into a multi-million pound, worldwide concern that ultimately would be bought and re-named Getty Images.
McIlvanney and Wooldridge, who died in March  aged 75, both enjoyed careers that saw them frequently work in television.
During his career, Wooldridge became so famous that, like the sports stars he reported upon, he hired the services of IMG, the agency founded by the American businessman, Mark McCormack, to manage his affairs. And Glanville wrote several books, including novels, as well as scripting the memorable official film to the World Cup staged in England.

Since the s, the growing importance of sport, its impact as a global business and the huge amounts of money involved from sponsorship and in the staging of the Olympic Games and football World Cups, has also attracted the attention of well-known investigative journalists. The sensitive nature of the relationships between sports journalists and the subjects of their reporting, as well as declining budgets experienced by most Fleet Street newspapers, has meant that such long-term projects have often emanated from television documentary makers.
Tom Bower, with his sports book of the year Broken Dreams , which analyzed British football soccer , followed in the tradition established a decade earlier by Andrew Jennings and Vyv Simson with their controversial investigation of corruption within the International Olympic Committee. Jennings and Simson's The Lords of the Rings in many ways predicted the scandals that were to emerge around the staging of the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City; Jennings would follow-up with two further books on the Olympics and one on FIFA , the world football body.
Likewise, award-winning writers Duncan Mackay, of The Guardian , and Steven Downes unraveled many scandals involving doping, fixed races and bribery in international athletics in their book, Running Scared , which offered an account of the threats by a senior track official that led to the suicide of their sports journalist colleague, Cliff Temple.
But the writing of such exposes—referred to as "spitting in the soup" by Paul Kimmage, the former Tour de France professional cyclist, who now writes for the Sunday Times —often requires the view of an outsider who is not compromised by the need of day-to-day dealings with sportsmen and officials, as required by "beat" correspondents.
The stakes can be high when upsetting sport's powers: when in , the English FA opted to switch its multi-million pound contract for UK coverage rights of the FA Cup and England international matches from the BBC to rival broadcasters ITV, one of the reasons cited was that the BBC had been too critical  of the performances of the England football team. Its signature show, Sportscenter, originated to show a larger package of sports highlights than local news programming. Since its inception, ESPN has grown into one of the largest players in the sports media industry.
Sports Illustrated is a well-known weekly sports magazine that has been covering sports since its inception on August 16, What started out as a magazine that covered yachting and polo has grown into a news source for all kinds of sports. More recently the great work of writers such as Rick Reilly have helped keep Sports Illustrated as a popular source for sports news. Fox broadcasting company entered the world of sports journalism in when in bid 1.
Since then, Fox Sports has become a large part of the sports journalism world with its regional television networks for many parts of the United States , and with its Fox Sports World channel.
