If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you have already donated ... Thank You!

Olympics: UK Athletics Golds

Athletics (or Track & Field, if you prefer) is known as the 'Blue Riband' sport of the Olympic Games. Back in the 20th century, when at most Olympiads you could count the number of gold medals that Great Britain won in total on the fingers of one hand, any British competitor who did win one instantly became a household name; but there was a special level of adulation reserved for those who did so in the athletics stadium. This website remembers those days well, so this page lists all of Team GB's gold medal winners in Track & Field since the Second World War.
