Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Allan Cleave Evan Lawrence (born 9 July 1930) was an Australian athlete. He competed for Australia in the 1956 Summer Olympics held in Melbourne, Australia in the 10,000 metres where he won the bronze medal, clocking 28:53. He also qualified for the 5,000 metre final, but did not compete due to a strained leg muscle. Two years later, he came to the University of Houston to run for the Cougars. In 1959-60, he captured consecutive NCAA cross-country titles and followed each with an AAU XC win. In 1960, he set a world indoor two-mile record with 8:46. Six days later, he won the AAU three-mile with another world record of 13:26.show more
