1956 Two of Belgrave's finest race-walkers

Belgrave Harriers have almost always had a stable of top-class race-walkers - but here are two of the finest. Eric Hall and Stanley Vickers both competed in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia, where Eric (left) placed 9th in the 50 kilometres in 5:03:59 and Stan was 5th over 20 kilometres in 1:32:34.2. Four years later, in the Rome Olympic Games of 1960, they both went for the 20 kilometres where Eric was 10th in 1:38:54.0 and Stan took the bronze medal in 1:34.56.4.
