The world's best sprinter at the 1924 Olympics, Eric Liddell (1902–1945), proved his unshakeable commitment to his faith when he refused to compete in the 100m on a Sunday, winning instead the 400m on a weekday. This biography of the athlete portrayed in the film Chariots of Fire describes his remarkable sporting career and his inspirational later work as a missionary in China, where he remained in testing conditions during the war until his death in a Japanese internment camp. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
