Biography

While still a student at Millfield School, Duncan Goodhew made his Olympic début in 1976 and finished seventh in the 100 metres breaststroke. At the 1978 Commonwealth Games he won silver medals in both individual breaststroke events and the medley relay, while at the World Championships that year he finished fourth in both individual events and won a bronze medal in the medley relay. A training spell at an American University under the great coach David Haller provided the final preparation for the 1980 Olympics, and in Moscow Goodhew won the gold medal in the 100 metres breastbone and a bronze in the medley relay. After his competitive career was over, Goodhew, who was bald because of a childhood illness that caused alopecia, became a familiar and easily distinguishable media personality.
