About this Item

Photographic postcard, a full-color image of Waitz on one side, a b/w image on the other. Signed by Waitz on the full-color side. Grete Waitz (née Andersen, 1 October 1953 - 19 April 2011) was a Norwegian marathon runner and former world record holder. In 1979, she became the first woman in history to run the marathon in under two and a half hours. She won nine New York City Marathons between 1978 and 1988, more than any other runner in history. She won a silver medal at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles and a gold medal at the 1983 World Championships in Helsinki. Her other marathon victories included winning the London Marathon in 1983 and 1986. She was also a five-time winner of the World Cross Country Championships. This postcard was issued to celebrate her 1979 acceptance of the Nurmi Award for Female Runner of the Year. Bookseller Inventory # D11637
