Biography

Daniel MORELON

Between 1966 and 1975, Daniel Morelon won a record nine world amateur sprint titles and three Olympic gold medals. He won the Olympic match sprint in 1968 and 1972, becoming the first of only two men to claim a repeat victory in the event. In 1968 he also won the Olympic tandem match sprint partnered by Pierre Trentin, and together they also won the world title in 1966. Morelon won a total of 14 French titles and set a world indoor record for 500 metres in 1976. He was almost exclusively a track sprinter and only turned professional briefly, after having become the French sprint cycling coach.
