About Login

Steve Cram was one of the world's dominant middle distance runners during the 1980s. He set world records at 1500m, mile and the 2000m and set three world records for those distances within 19 days during the summer of 1985. He was the first man to run 1500m in under 3 mins 30 secs and won the gold medal in the 1500m at the 1983 World Championships and silver in the 1984 Olympics behind Seb Coe. He also won gold medals at 1500m in the 1982 and 1986 European Championships along with a bronze over 800m in the 1986 Championships. He won the Commonwealth Games 1500m in 1982 and 1986 and also the gold over 800m in 1986.

He is still the fastest British runner ever over 1500m (3:29.67), 1 mile (3:46.32) and 2000m (4:51.39). Cram now works for the BBC as an athletics presenter and he can be seen and heard at all of the major domestic and worldwide meetings for track, indoor, cross country and road running and his knowledge and passion for the sport is reflected in his commentaries.
