Death of Ron Clarke
It is with great sadness that the International Fair Play Committee (CIFP) has learnt of the death of Ron Clarke, Australian World Champion runner and former Gold Coast Mayor, at the age of 78.
The running legend set 17 world records during the 1950s and 1960s and won a bronze medal in the 10,000-metre event at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo. In 1956, he was chosen to light the Olympic flame during the Opening Ceremony for the Melbourne Olympics.
He had been awarded the Order of Australia and honoured as a Member of the British Empire.
The CIFP expresses its deepest sympathies to Ron Clarke’s family.
