Emil Voigt awarded IAAF World Heritage plaque

Manchester Harriers have an athlete in the first 10 inductees of the IAAF World Athletics Heritage Plaque, the first British athlete to do so.
Emil was the last British athlete to win a long-distance running gold medal at the Olympic Games prior to Mo Farah’s 2012 double. Voigt’s success was 104 years earlier at the first London Olympic Games where he triumphed in the 5-mile event in a time of 25:11.
