Frank Clement to be honoured in Glasgow

4th June 2010

Olympic 1500m finalist Frank Clement will be honoured by his native Glasgow at the Lord Provost's Annual Awards in the City Chambers on Friday (4 June).

Clement was fifth at the 1976 Games in Montreal and an agonising fourth at the 1978 Commonwealths in Edmonton. He also won the Europa Cup and World Student Games 1500m and broke the UK mile record during the golden age of British middle distance running.

Born and raised in Glasgow, Clement is a graduate of Strathclyde University and competed for Bellahouston Harriers. After quitting the track, he spent 26 years working for Glasgow City Council, where he was race director of the Glasgow Women's 10k.

"I've enjoyed a long connection with Glasgow, and this award is very humbling," said the 58-year-old.

"I can take my family along, which is smashing. I got four tickets but I have a wife and five daughters, so I needed extra tickets!"
