Eric Liddell became well known for being the fastest runner in Scotland.
Eric Liddell, fondly called the "Flying Scotsman," was born in Tientsin (Tianjin) in North China, second son of the Rev & Mrs James Dunlop Liddell.
People of faith everywhere have been inspired by the giving heart and unwavering conviction of Eric Liddell.
Others who were in the same camp testify that Eric Liddell maintained his faith, courage and kindness towards others until the end in spite of the pain he must have been experiencing.
Eric Liddell ran for the glory of God and Harold Abrahams ran to prove his worth to a society that was anti-Semitic.
