Paula Radcliffe News


Paula Jane Radcliffe, MBE (born on 17 December 1973 in Davenham, Cheshire, England) is a British long-distance runner and currently holds several world records.

Radcliffe's distinctive "nodding" action while running has made her instantly recognisable to British viewers. She is not known for her sprint finish and instead relies on setting a punishing pace from the start in order to pull away from her opponents and open an unassailable gap.

In 2002, Radcliffe was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year and in June 2008 was awarded an MBE.
