To those who knew the wonderful coach John Sullivan. We have been told that John has sadly passed away. The funeral service will be held on Wednesday 15th February at 11am at St Mary and St Michael Catholic Church, 2 Lukin Street, Commercial Road, London E1 0AA.
John’s international reputation was based on his elite middle distance squad, whose depth was unequalled during the ‘golden age’ of middle distance running in the UK in the 1980s and attracted athletes from several countries around Europe to train with him in London. However he also gained significant success coaching hurdlers and his attention from the mid-1990s became increasingly focused on shorter distances, hence he worked with internationals at all men's track disciplines.
