The Olympic Runners were a 1970s British funk band, put together by record producer Mike Vernon who also played percussion, and fronted by singer George Chandler. They also included multi-instrumentalist Pete Wingfield, and had a number of hit singles in both the US and UK.
Their commercial success diminished in the US at the same time as it grew in the UK, and their biggest successes in the UK charts came in 1978-79, with the hit singles “Get It While You Can” and “Sir Dancealot”. In 1979 they also performed the theme tune for the film The Bitch, starring Joan Collins, which gave them a third UK Top 40 hit.
