|Cliff Young M (AUS), geb. 1922-02-08|
Cliff Young became a household name when he upstaged George Perdon and other more fancied candidates to win the inaugural Sydney-Melbourne race in 1983. Folklore has it that all runners retired to bed on the first night of the journey but Cliff awoke early at 12:25 am, misreading the clock for 5:00 am. Being out of bed and on his feet he decided to resume running. He managed to get such a start on the others that they were unable to catch him.
