Biography

In addition to his two Olympic medals in the track time trial, gold in 1932 and bronze in 1928, Edgar “Dunc” Gray also won the 1,000 yard time trial at the 1934 British Empire Games, and the sprint at the 1938 British Empire Games. At home he won 20 national titles between 1926-41. At the 1932 Olympics, Gray was sick with severe flu a week before the Games, but recovered in time. In 1936 at Berlin and 1938 at the British Empire Games in Sydney, Gray was the Australian standard bearer at the Opening Ceremony. The velodrome where the track events were held in Sydney in 2000 was named after him.
