Maurice Herriott – Olympic steeplechase silver medallist in 1964

AAA champion every year between 1961 and 1967 – architect of the Manx middle distance record breaking spree of the 1980s

A three part interview




and the three most revealing things that were said after the camera was switched off:

"Gaston Roelants (the 1964 winner) gave me his vest and said ‘Have a look at the front as you’ve only seen the back.’  I had one beer with him to celebrate the medals."

"I nearly died at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico."

"They have posh names these days like Comraderie but we just thought of ourselves as friends." (referring to his team mates).
