Ron Clarke has passed away  

Posted by Pete McBreen Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:35:59 GMT

Australian runner from the 1960’s has passed away he set multiple 5K and 10K distance records in the 1960’s.

As an athlete Clarke was revered not for medals he won but for the fact he changed his sport. He didn’t just break records, he reshaped the entire idea of what was possible: he reduced the 5000m record four times by a total of 18 seconds, the 10,000m three times, by 39 seconds in all. At his peak in 1965 during a 44-day tour of Europe he set 12 world records, nine of them in just 21 days.
