Biography

Émile Ali Khan started athletics at the US du Lycée Massena in Nice, where he studied. He then joined Nice Sports Athlétique, then US de Villefranche-sur-Mer, and eventually AS Cannes. He was 1920 French champion in the 100 metres, which earned him his Olympic spot. In Bordeaux he equaled the world record in the 60 metres with a time of 6.8. At the 1920 Antwerpen Olympics, Ali Khan qualified for the 100 metre final and placed fifth, recording his personal best of 10.8 in the semi-finals, but he won a silver medal with the French 4x100 relay team, beaten only by the United States. He finished his individual career in 1921 but continued to run relay races.

Personal Best\: 100 – 10.8 (1920).
