Photograph of Jack Lovelock with trainer Bill Thomas, 15 Sep 1936
Reference Number: MSX-2248-088
A photograph from Lovelock's albums showing Lovelock and his trainer, Bill Thomas. The photograph was taken after a three-quarter mile time trial just before they set off together for America, and Lovelock's last race. He had wanted to get his mile world record back, but his form was fading and he was instead beaten by Archie San Romani, who had been fourth at the Berlin Olympics. Thomas was the trainer for the Oxford University Athletic Club, but continued to help Lovelock with his training after Lovelock left Oxford. In addition to the 1936 race in America he accompanied Lovelock to his big race in America in 1935, and assisted the New Zealand team at the Berlin Olympics.
