Tommy Godwin

There’s a really nice short piece about two Tommy Godwins here. The first Tommy Godwin won two medals at the London Olympics in 1948. There is a clip in the film of him riding the track at the age of 90.

The other Tommy Godwin rode 75000 miles in one year. this equates to 200 miles per day, or 88 LeJogs. it’s beyond my comprehension and still a world record.

the strand is about 18 minutes in, and won’t be on the iplayer for long. you must watch it.

thanks to steve for the link.
