Herb Elliott
21 February 2014
If one athlete can be described as unbeatable, it has to be Herb Elliott. In his professional running career, the Australian simply never lost. In 1958, the middle-distance legend set the world record in the mile, clocking 3 mins 54.5 secs. Later that month, he smashed the 1500m record, running 3 mins 36 secs. It was the 1960 Rome Olympics that Elliot enjoyed his finest hour, however, winning gold in the 1500m and beating his own world record in the process. And with that, at the tender age of 22, Elliot retired.

The daddy of the winning streak, American 400m hurdler Ed Moses clocked up nearly a decade of unanswered victories. Between 1977 and 1987, he won 122 consecutive races, including two Olympic finals. During that period, Moses broke his own world record a couple of times and won a World Championship gold. To this day, he still holds 24 of the 98 fastest times in the 400m hurdles. After he hung up his spikes, Moses busied himself by helping the track and field community to develop one of sport’s most stringent in-competition drug-testing systems.

Steve Ovett
21 February 2014
From 1977 to 1980, Steve Ovett was pretty much unbeatable over distances of 1500m and one mile. During that period, the Englishmen clocked up a 42-race winning streak, sweeping away the competition. So dominant was Ovett during this period, that he could force his other competitors to give up, as was the case with New Zealander John Walker. Ovett’s winning streak came to an abrupt end at the 1980 Moscow Olympics, however,when he was beaten over 1500m by his great rival Sebastian Coe.
