Seoul 1988


October 2018 saw the thirtieth anniversary of Great Britain (GB) men’s gold medal success in the Seoul Olympics, beating West Germany 3-1 in the final. Who can forget commentator Barry Davies’s immortal line:

“Where were the Germans? But frankly, who cares?”

To mark the occasion, a match was held at Lee Valley between the current GB and Belgium teams with many of the gold medallists in attendance. In a classy, historical nod to the final, the GB players wore special shirts emblazoned with a black chevron, just like their predecessors wore across their shirts in ’88.

THM was invited to put together a small display in the VIP ‘Champions Suite’ at the event and were delighted to accept. We were able to exhibit: Robert Clift’s tracksuit top, Richard Leman’s blazer and David Faulkner’s playing shirt.
