Ralph Doubell AM

Ralph Doubell (athletics) is most famous for his gold medal victory at the 1968 Mexico Olympics in the 800m event in a then world record time of 1:44.3. The time stood as the Australian record until 2019. Before his Mexico triumph, Doubell competed in the 880 yards and 1 mile events at the 1966 Commonwealth Games in Kingston, and won gold in the 800m at the 1967 World University Games. A five-time Australian 800m champion, Doubell’s last competition for Australia occurred at the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh where he finished 6th in the 800m, the same finishing place as his first appearance in 1966. Doubell was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 1985.
