Revised edition of the biography of Olympic champion and missionary Eric Liddell. Eric Liddell, the Scottish 400m Olympic champion from the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris was immortalized in the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire. His story, however, goes far beyond the restrictions of a 2-hour movie. Julian Wilson's vivid biography recounts not only the highs and lows of Liddell's athletic career, including his controversial decision never to run on a Sunday, but also his life after the Olympics as a missionary in war-torn China. The book draws upon interviews with Liddell's surviving family and friends, and includes some fascinating anecdotes, reminiscences, extracts from his letters and a number of rare photographs.
