Grete Waitz - 9 time NYC Marathon Champion, 5 time World Cross Country Champion, 8 time World Record Holder

Celebrate the career of a true trailblazer! This amazing poster demonstrates just how far women have come in the sporting world in just a single generation. Born and raised in Oslo, Norway, this remarkable distance runner was restricted to competing in just the 1,500 meters race in the 1976 Olympic Games, as women were not allowed to compete at longer distances. Undeterred, Grete Waitz kept at her craft, and by 1978, she was invited to compete in the New York Marathon, and became a record-setting sensation. Finally, in 1984 at the Los Angeles Olympic Games, Grete's dream was realized - the women's marathon was added to the competition, and the 30-year-old Waitz had her chance at long-distance gold. Despite being edged out by American runner Joan Benoit, Grete's silver medal will always be remembered as a part of sporting history.

From Running Past's fantastic historic running series, this poster is perfect for the wall of any marathon enthusiast, and any female athlete looking for a little inspiration. With historic photography from the prime of her career, it will inspire you to greater heights with every glance, and will remind you of one of the most incredible performers in running history. The perfect addition to your sports wall-of-fame!
