Robert Ingpen's original design of an image of American runner, Bob Morrow. The artist's original image number - 101 - and subject's name and country, are handwritten below the design. A sheet of tracing paper, with grid lines and references, folds over the artwork which is signed and dated by the artist. The image is included in a tapestry celebrating 150 years of performances and events on the MCG. In 1956, Morrow won three gold medals - in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m Relay - at the Melbourne Olympic Games at the MCG.
