Next up in our series covering our favourite British athletics stars, it is…
Sunderland fan (thought we’d get that one in for Cookie) Steve, nicknamed the Jarrow Arrow, won World Gold in the 1500m and broke the world record in both this event and the 2000m. Steve also won a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics in an era where Middle distance running for Great Britain was at his peak.
He’s also a voice known to all as part of his commentary work for world athletics.
