Summary
Ralph Doubell should be one of Australia's best known Olympic heroes. In the 800 metres at Mexico City in 1968, he produced arguably the finest run in Australian Olympic history, but his achievement never received the plaudits it deserved. Finally, author Michael Sharp has written a compelling biography of the last of the three Australian male track athletes - after Edwin Flack and Herb Elliott - to win Olympic gold. Doubell's role models were athletics legends such as Vladimir Kuts, Herb Elliott and John Landy. His phenomenal inner-drive inspired him as an athlete, a student at the University of Melbourne and Harvard, and later as an investment banker in New York. His coach, the legendary Franz Stampfl, mentor to Sir Roger Bannister, was a man of strong opinions. Doubell's similarly robust views on the decline of Australian middle-distance running will cause controversy
