CUAC has many Olympic Champions and former world record holders in its hall of fame. The story of one such man’s time at Cambridge was immortalised in the 1981 film 'Chariots of Fire', as Harold Abrahams struck Olympic 100m Gold. In 1987, Jon Ridgeon defeated Colin Jackson to take Silver at the World Championships. See below for some of our most notable athletic achievements:
