Content Warning

The Athletics Museum’s mission is to tell the stories of athletics. We acknowledge that content from historical sources may use language or terminology which, while reflecting the attitudes of the time, are not appropriate today.

The Athletics Museum will not shy away from nor censor historical material; it is an important part of our sporting history and shows the strides athletics has made and continues to make towards a fairer sport, but we would like to make it clear that attitudes expressed in historical data do not represent the views of The Athletics Museum, England Athletics, or the Amateur Athletic Association.
