 Eamonn Martin, Ford Retiree and Olympian

DATE: Will be calculated from "Release Start Date" field.

Recently, @Ford put out a call for all those employees, agency/contract as well as retirees with a connection to the Olympics, Paralympics and Senior Olympics.  Over the coming days, @Ford will share our Blue Oval Olympian stories.  Click here for the first installment, which includes an Olympian’s parent, a drummer, a diver, a long distance runner, and more.

Retired Ford engineer Eamonn Martin was an elite long distance runner from England.

As the most recent British male winner of the London Marathon, he ran 2:10:50 to win the 1993 race in a sprint finish against the Mexican athlete Isidro Rico.

That race was Martin’s debut marathon. He went on to win the Chicago Marathon in 1995 (2:11:18) and was a top competitor in track, cross country and road racing – also competing in the Commonwealth Games, Belfast International Cross Country race and the 1984 and 1988 Summer Olympics.

Martin is now the English Cross-Country team manager.
