David Moorcroft | Speaker Biography

In 1982, David Moorcroft, a Coventry Godiva athlete, made history at the Bislett Games in Oslo. Known for his strong finishing kick, Moorcroft surprised everyone by charging ahead from the 800m mark in the 5000m race. He won in a time of 13:00.41, breaking the previous record by 5.39 seconds. Prior to this achievement, Moorcroft had established himself as a talented British distance runner, excelling in both short and long distances. He won the 1500m Commonwealth Games title in 1978 and the 5000m European Cup in 1981. After his world record-breaking performance, Moorcroft went on to win the 5000m at the Commonwealth Games in Brisbane. He also competed in the Olympic Games, making the 1500m final in 1976. In 1993, at the age of 40, Moorcroft set a new British veterans record for the mile. Throughout his career, Moorcroft demonstrated not only speed but also remarkable stamina. After retiring from running, he continued to contribute to the world of athletics, working on youth and sports projects in Coventry and serving as the chief executive of the British Athletics Federation.
