Lovelock NZ's Olympic Gold Miler
Christopher Tobin

Pub 1984 1st Edition card covers 72 pages illustrated

Jack Lovelock won the 1500 metres at the1936 Berlin Olympic Games setting a world record 3 minutes 47.8 seconds and was the winner of New Zealand’s first Olympic gold medal in athletics. "An astonishing race in which the first five all broke the Olympic record." The commentator, and a friend, Harold Abrahams, famously lost his BBC poise and broke every broadcasting rule: "Lovelock leads! Lovelock! Lovelock! Cunningham second, Beccali third. Come on, Jack! A hundred yards to go! Come on, Jack!! My God, he's done it. Jack, come on! … Lovelock wins. Five yards, six yards, he wins. He's won. Hooray!!"
