Biography

An officer with the Australian Imperial Forces, Eric Dunbar served in England on attachment to the 13th Hussars. In 1920 he won the 120y hurdles and shared first place in the high jump at the Army Championships and he was also the winner of the hurdles at the Southern Counties Championships and the British Olympic Trials before finishing third at the AAA Championships. Although a team from his native Australia competed at the 1920 Olympics, Dunbar was somewhat surprisingly selected to represent Britain in the 110 hurdles and the high jump and after the Olympics, he represented the British Empire vs. USA in both events. On leaving Britain, he spent some years in New Zealand where he won the National javelin title in 1924.

Personal Bests: 110H – 15.4 (1920); HJ – 1.73 (1920); LJ – 6.32 (20-9) (1920); JT – 46.02 (151-0) (1925).
