Biography

With only the cross-country event remaining, Great Britain were in fourth place in the Modern Pentathlon team event at the 1976 Olympics with all hopes resting on Adrian Parker, rated as one of the best runners in the world among pentathletes. If all went well, the bronze, or perhaps the silver medals, seemed a possibility. With an outstanding run, Parker won the cross-country discipline and against all probabilities, Britain won the Gold. Parker, a director of the family music firm, had been the British Champion in 1975.
