LIDDELL Eric (1902 - 1945) Scotland / Track and Field
Gold medallist in the 400 m at the 1924 Paris games, Scotsman Eric Liddell was a true hero, whose story is told in the movie masterpiece, "Chariots of Fire".With a liking for the short sprint, he also competed in the 200 m, finishing third. He would also have liked to line up for the 100 m, but the race was held on a Sunday. His religious convictions prevented him from trying his luck.After his hour of glory in Paris, he returned to his missionary work in Asia, where he was to meet his death in a Japanese prison camp.
