Duncan Goodhew Olympic swimming memorabilia would compliment any collector's portfolio.

It was at Millfield public school that Duncan met professional coach Paddy Garrett who soon took an interest in his swimming abilities. Duncan went on to represent GB at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal.

In 1980 as captain of the GB swim team at the politically controversial Moscow Olympics he won his Gold Medal in the 100 M breast stroke and Bronze in the 4 x 100 M medley.

He became a national hero and a household name; he was awarded the MBE for services to sport in 1981

Duncan is a highly regarded motivational speaker and as president of the Swimathon campaign has raised millions for charities since its inception in 1988.

His marketing company is not surprisingly at the forefront of sports events management.

He has written an informative book drawn from his own life experiences Sink or Swim.

 Sought after Swimming memorabilia includes framed presentations, hand signed autographs, programmes, first day covers, medals, bands and swim attire. (caps).

I have been fortunate to recently acquire framed memorabilia collectibles  and autographs featuring, Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz, Duncan Goodhew, Adrian Moorhouse, Johnny Weissmuller and Sharron Davies.

I would be delighted to hear from anyone who may have  prewar collectibles such as Malcolm Champion, Harold Hardwick, Norman Wainwright, Dr Sammy Lee and many more……
