Sebastian Newbold Coe, Baron Coe, KBE (născut la 29 septembrie 1956), adesea cunoscut ca Seb Coe, respectiv formal Lord Coe,[1] [2] este un fost atlet, politician și oficial olimpic englez.

În calitate de sportiv alergând pe distanță medie, Coe won four Olympic medals, including the 1500 metres gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984. He set eight outdoor and three indoor world records in middle-distance track events – including, in 1979, setting three world records in the space of 41 days – and the world record he set in the 800 metres in 1981 remained unbroken until 1997. Coe's rivalries with fellow Britons Steve Ovett and Steve Cram dominated middle-distance racing for much of the 1980s.[3]

Following Coe's retirement from athletics, he was a Member of Parliament for the Conservative Party from 1992–97, and became a Life Peer in 2000. He headed the successful London bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympics and became chairman of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games. In 2007, he was also elected a vice-president of the International Association of Athletics Federations. On 25 August 2011, he was re-elected for another four-year term.[4] In 2012, he was made a Pro-Chancellor at Loughborough University where he had been an undergraduate, and is also a member of the university’s governing body.

În anul 2012, Coe a fost unul din cei 24 de atleți, care au fost nominalizați pentru Galeria atleților (Hall Of Fame) a International Association of Athletics Federations. [5]

Viață timpurie[modificare | modificare sursă]

Coe was born in Chiswick, London. His mother, Tina Angela Lal, died in London, in 2005, aged 75. She was half-Indian, born to a Punjabi father, Sardari Lal, and an English mother, Vera (née Swan).[6] His father, Peter Coe (né Percy N. Coe) died 9 August 2008, aged 88, while Coe was in Beijing.[7]

Coe was brought up in Sheffield, attending Tapton[8] and Abbeydale Grange schools. He joined athletics team Hallamshire Harriers at the age of 12, and quickly became a middle-distance specialist. He was coached by his father and represented Loughborough University and later Haringey when not competing for his country.[9] Coe studied Economics and Social History at Loughborough University and won his first major race in 1977—an 800-metre event at the European indoor championships in San Sebastián, Spain. It was at Loughborough University that he met athletics coach George Gandy, who had developed "revolutionary" conditioning exercise to improve Coe's running.[10]
