Biographie

William FOSTER

Exactly two weeks after his 18th birthday, William Foster was on a winning relay team at the 1908 Games and remains, through 2016, the youngest ever male British Olympic gold medalist. Willie started swimming at the Maden Baths in Bacup where David Billington, winner of 10 national titles between 1901-05, also used to train. Willie later joined Hyde Seal and, although he never won an ASA title, was in the top flight of British swimmers for a number of years. Foster’s sisters Ivy, Mary and Annie were all either schoolgirl, or Borough, champion swimmers at the turn of the century.
