Steve Cram is a British retired track and field athlete who was one of the world’s dominant middle distance runners during the 1980s. He created several world records over the course of his career and was the first man to run 1500 m under 3 minutes and 30 seconds.

The winner of the 1500 m at the 1983 World Championships and a silver medalist at the Olympic Games the next year, he had also won several gold medals at the Commonwealth Games. Born into a close knit family in Gateshead, England, he was brought up in an environment where utmost significance was given to the values of hard work and strong ethics. Tall and well-built, he became interested in sports at a young age and took to running early on. He began participating in prestigious competitions and made it to the Olympic team in 1980. He tasted his first big success at the Commonwealth Games in 1982 and took the 1500 m gold. His career took off from there and over the years he collected several medals. Known for his penchant for setting frequent world records, he was equally famous for his on-field rivalry with fellow Britons Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett. Following his retirement he embarked on a career as a television presenter and athletics commentator, motivational speaker and athletics coach.
