Lord Sebastian Coe set the athletics world alight in the late 70’s and early 80’s, with his world record for the 800 metres set in 1981 being unbeaten until 1997. Coe won four Olympic medals, and set eight outdoor and three indoor world records in middle-distance track events. In 1979, he set three world records in the space of 41 days – and the world record he set in the 800 metres in 1981 remained unbroken until 1997.

He was private secretary to William Hague, the leader of the Conservative Party in opposition between 1997 and 2001, and in 2000, he was one of 33 new Peers appointed to the reconstructed House of Lords, taking the title of Lord Coe of Ranmore. He headed the successful London Bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympics and became chairman of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games.
In 2007, he was also elected a vice-president of the International Association of Athletes Federations. On 25 August 2011, he was re-elected for another four-year term, and in 2012, he was appointed Pro-Chancellor at Loughborough University where he had been an undergraduate.
