“Tomorrow is another day, and there will be another battle!” - Seb Coe (a few minutes after a 2nd place finish in the 800m Olympic Games final in Moscow 1980, he later won the 1500m)
One of the greatest middle distance runners of all time, Sebastian Coe is the only man in modern times to have won the Olympic 1500m title twice. His victory in Moscow in 1980, a comeback triumph after losing the 800m, for which he was an overwhelming favourite, was testament to his courage and mental strength.
Coe also set eight outdoor and three indoor world records in middle distance track events and was a dominant figure in middle distance running throughout the 1980s. As well as four Olympic medals, Coe boasts a European Championships gold medal for the 800m in Stuttgart, 1986.
Since his athletics career ended in 1990, Coe has ventured into politics and become a key figure in British sport off the track. He was Chairman of the London 2012 bid company and is now Chair of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. In 2007, he was also elected vice-president of the International Association of Athletics Federations.
We are delighted to offer a fantastic range of signed Sebastian Coe memorabilia here at Icons in association with the official licensee Innovative Sports Ltd.
