Hall of Fame

Peter Coghlon is probably our most illustrious former Belvederian. A Sydney Olympian, Peter has the unfortunate distinction of running the fastest time not to qualify for any Olympic 110m Hurdles final at any Olympics before or since. Still Irish record holder, Peter is considered peerless in his field. Like Many Irish Olympians Peter studied at Yale University and Belvedere Students have a long history of Track and Field and Cross Country scholarships in Irish and American Universities.
