Cartoon of Jack Lovelock after he broke the world mile record
Date
22 Jul 1933
Ref
MSX-2247-058
Description

A cutting from the New York Sun newspaper, showing Lovelock just after he had broken the world mile record at Princeton University in America, with a time of 4 minutes 7.6 seconds. It is one of many such cuttings in his albums relating to this performance - they take up a whole volume.

The cartoon describes Lovelock as the `modern Mercury' and lists his time and those of the other five fastest mile runners. At the bottom it also claims that Lovelock held the world three-quarter mile record of 3 minutes 2.2 seconds, but, in fact, he never did, as a faster time by Jules Ladoumegue had been previously ratified.

Quantity: 1 page.
