Sebastion Coe character jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, in a 2012 limited edition of 350. Sebastian Newbold Coe (1956- ) is a British politician and former track and field athlete. As a middle-distance runner, Coe won four Olympic medals, including 1500 metres gold medals at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984. He set nine outdoor and three indoor world records in middle-distance track events, including setting three world records in the space of 41 days in 1979, and the world record he set in the 800 metres in 1981 remained unbroken until 1997. Coe's rivalries with fellow Britons Steve Ovett and Steve Cram dominated middle-distance racing for much of the 1980s. This jug celebrates Coe for heading the successful London 2012 Olympic bid for the 2012 Summer Olympics and then became chairman of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games. The British flag forms the handle of the jug, which was modeled by Ray Noble.
