Twenty years ago today, the Sydney Olympic Games enraptured the world with what is widely regarded as one of the most thrilling nights in athletics history.
In the latest of our fab five series, we focus on a clutch of world champions who garnished their considerable achievement with the elation of posting a world record.
The IAAF Ambassadors Press Conference, marking 30 years of the IAAF World Championships, featured two IAAF Ambassadors, Great Britain’s 1983 1500m champion Steve Cram and Russia’s 1996 Olympic Games 800m and 1500m champion Svetlana Masterkova. US hurdler Ryan Wilson, who won the 110m Hurdles silver medal on Monday, was also there as a guest on Friday (15).
The fifth IAAF Ambassadors Press Conference featured the Triple Jump World record holder, 2000 Olympic Games champion and double World champion Jonathan Edwards, and former 800m World record holder and three-time World champion over 800m Wilson Kipketer.
Edwards and Arron voted European Athletes of the Year
