This is a list of my favourite Olympians, although one of them has never won an Olympic event. I have chosen him because of his sportsmanship and his dedication to sports and the Olympic Movement. John Landy was my hero during my school days and I could not leave him out. I have taken the list up to the Torvill and Dean era. After that era, sponsorship, training facilities and training methods changed so dramatic, I would need to make up a separate list of great Olympians.
