EDITORS COMMENTS
This iconic photograph captures the thrilling moment when Scottish athlete, Eric Liddell, crosses the finish line to win the gold medal in the 400 metres final at the 1924 Paris Olympics. Liddell, famously portrayed in the film "Chariots of Fire," was a devout Christian and a strict Sabbath observer, who refused to compete in the 100 metres heats as they were held on a Sunday. Instead, he focused on the 400 metres event and set a new Olympic record with a time of 47.6 seconds. The image shows Liddell in full flight, his powerful muscles straining as he pushes towards the finish line, with a sea of athletes and spectators in the background. The photograph is a testament to Liddell's determination, grit, and athletic prowess, and his victory remains one of the most memorable moments in Olympic history. This image is a must-have for any collection of Olympic memorabilia, athletics history, or sports photography.
