Louis Zamperini was announced dead in May 1943; but that was wrong.  Finally the odds caught up with him and he died today, July 14, 2014 after dealing with the atrocities of a Japanese War camp.  He credits, on his website, his Olympic training;  he was in the 1936 Olympiad for Track and Field.   The Atlantic magazine interviewed him here shortly before his repose.  You can read it here.
