Biography

At the 1925 AAA Championships, Frederick Chauncy finished fourth in the 120y hurdles and was selected for the match against France. In 1928 he fell heavily in his heat of the AAA 440y hurdles but was still chosen for the Olympic team. In Amsterdam he reached the semi-finals but, following an unfortunate draw, he was eliminated by the athletes who took the first three places in the final. Commissioned into the King’s Regiment he surprisingly never won an Army title. From 1932-36, he served as British Vice-Consul in Mohammerah, Persia.

Personal Bests: 120yH – 16.4 (1925); 440yH – 58.0e (1928).
