TARIS Jean (1909-1977) France / Swimming
Jean Taris has one of the finest records of any French swimmer. He already held about ten world records when he went to the Los Angeles games in 1932.He was leading the final lap of the 400 m free style event comfortably when over confidence made him slow down in the last few meters. The American Crabbe overtook him and in the end got the gold medal, leaving Taris with the silver, a humiliation which was to take Taris many years to get over.
