This is a hand signed 5" x 3" white card by the late English athlete who in the 1930's and 40's was one of Britain's greatest middle distance runners.
Sydney Charles Wooderson MBE (30 August 1914 - 21 December 2006), dubbed "The Mighty Atom", was an English athlete whose peak career was in the 1930s and 1940s. He was one of Britain's greatest middle-distance runners and had an amazing sprint finish. His slightly built and bespectacled appearance disguised immense reserves of strength and an overwhelming turn of speed. He set the world mile record of 4min 6.4sec at London's Motspur Park on 28 August 1937. This record stood for nearly five years.
