Dublin Straight Mile 1983 - Race Winner Sydney Maree pre race interview

In the last of our series of archived footage from November 1983, we have Dublin Straight Mile race winner Sydney Maree. South African born, US based Maree was one of the hot favourites for the race win in the lead up given his recent form, and so it was with his 3.49.0 finish time.

In this interview he discussed how he favoured road races, his perspective on losing a recent record, his preference for running as an underdog and his expectations for the upcoming race.

Thank you to RTE Sport for kindly providing us with this amazing footage from all those years ago.
