The Olympic Museum has recently acquired the collection of inspirational and innovative New Zealand coach Arthur Lydiard.
Charles Callis, Director of the Olympic Museum, says, “the Arthur Lydiard collection is a highly significant and important addition to the expanding collection of the Olympic Museum. It is my intention that the material will be publicly accessible for research purposes and Olympic Museum exhibitions.”
Arthur can be credited for guiding the outstanding running careers of well known champions as Peter Snell, Bill Baillie, Sir Murray Halberg. And Barry Magee.
