Dixon, JOHN Dixon
You guys made me curious, so I did some digging...
The guy was good!
John Dixon was NZ Cross country champ in 1975 (38:33) and also '78 (36:09). Are those 12k times? Not that it matters much in cross. Rod, of course had several XC and track national titles.
As Kim mentioned, John was part of the WINNING NZ team at the World Cross in '75, in Rabat, Morocco, finishing 26th behind countrymen John Walker (4th), Euan Roberson (5th), and Dave Sirl (25th). Kiwis behind him were Jack Foster (36th), Kevin Ryan (71st) and Dick Quax (91st). The top 6 scored for the team. They were just inducted as a team into the NZ Sports Hall of Fame.
I must point out that none of those fast Kiwis caught our own Bill Rodgers, who took the bronze!
