TAYLOR Henry (1885 - 1951) Great Britain / Swimming
This young British swimmer had had to train in appalling conditions before becoming a champion. He was too poor to afford entrance tickets to swimming pools, so had to swim in the cold filthy water of local streams and canals.But these hardships finally bore fruit.At the London games in 1908 he won three gold medals for the 400 m and 1500 m free style events and for the 4x200 m race.He was to win a bronze medal in Stockholm in 1912, and another bronze in Antwerp eight years later.
