Which former England cricketer also played for the England football team, held the world record for the long jump, and reputedly turned down the throne of Albania?

(Even well into his seventies he claimed he was still able to perform his party trick: leaping from a stationary position backwards onto a mantelpiece.)

That would be the inimitable CB Fry who is, allegedly, a distant forebear of our national treasure Stephen

In 2002 Paula Craig competed in the London Marathon, finishing in 2hrs 48 mins, some 9 minutes quicker than her previous best set in 2000. She had run every race from 1995 to 2000 but then missed 2001 due to injury.
By participating in 2002 she became the first female to do what at the London Marathon?

Was she the first woman to win after becoming a mother?

No, she didn't win in '02, Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson did.

Ah - was she the first woman to complete the course as both able bodied and wheelchair bound?

That is correct - initially I thought she was injured in the 7/7 attacks but further research showed that she was hit by a car while trading for another event in May 2001.

I'm sure I recall seeing a list (albeit short) of those that had both run and wheeled the London Marathon but I couldn't find it again.

Sticking with the London Marathon, who holds the fastest time for a celebrity? He ran 2 hours and 32 minutes in 1985 whilst serving as a Conservative MP but left parliament a year later and has been one of Britain's best known journalists ever since with columns in The Times and The Spectator and frequent appearances on radio and TV.
