Description

The Tough of the Track was The Victor’s most popular hero, having instilled the competitive spirit into millions of British lads for over 50 years.

A welder who worked under railway arches, Alf Tupper survived on a diet of fish and chips. He was always the underdog, running against posh toffs who devised underhand ways of keeping him off the winner’s rostrum. Although Alf often looked beaten, he nearly always came through in the final few strides, exclaiming “I’ve run him!” as he breasted the winning tape in a photo-finish. Published in the year the Olympic Games returns to Britain, this nostalgic anthology will not only be the perfect gift for the millions of men whose love of sport was kindled in their youth by Alf Tupper, but will also enthrall and inspire a new generation of boys to go and win against all the odds.
