William Rosenbir Garcia (March 28, 1877 – August 12, 1951) was an American track and field athlete who competed in the 1904 Summer Olympics.

In 1904 he did not finish in marathon competition.[1] He made it 19 miles before he started coughing up blood on the side of the street. If a passing bystander hadn't found him, he might have died.
