Emmy award for the 1981 New York Marathon, controversial for the fact that the World Record was rescinded from winner Alberto Salazar after it was determined that the course had been mis-measured. Emmy was presented at the 1982 Sports Emmy Awards, won by ABC Camera Operator Stanley Majdanski in the category of ''Outstanding Individual Achievement in Sports Programming''. The first Sports Emmy award was issued in 1950 as part of a regular Emmy ceremony, though the field of sports coverage earned a ceremony all on its own in 1979. The iconic winged woman holding an atom stands on the convex, grid-lined surface of a round metal base, plated in 18k gold. Flat perimeter of base reads: ''THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF TELEVISION ARTS AND SCIENCES''. Plaque is engraved with 5 lines naming the award, its category and recipient: ''1981-1982 SPORTS EMMY AWARD / Outstanding Individual Achievement in Sports Programming / S. MAJDANSKI - ELECTRONIC CAMERAPERSON / New York Marathon / ABC''. Measures 15'' in total height with 7.5'' diameter base and weighs 8 lbs, 3 oz. Dimensions are the same as Emmys presented in the standard Creative Arts category. Part of one wing has broken off, black band is bent in one spot and some tarnishing to gold finish. Overall in good condition.
