Biography

After serving with the Army Cyclist Corps in France, Walter Freeman took up cross-country running on his return home and won international honors in his first full season. In 1920 he finished fourth in the National and third in the International Cross-Country, but at the Olympics he finished well down the field. In 1921 he won both the National and International but never quite recaptured this form in later seasons. On the track his best performance was to take third place in the AAA 10 miles in 1922. He worked for the Enfield Cycle Company at Redditch.
