THOMPSON Dailey (1958) Great Britain / Track and field
Dailey Thomson was provocative and moustachioed when he won the decathlon title in Moscow in 1980.He was still provocative and moustachioed when he won it again in Los Angeles four years later.Between each of the ten events at both these games Thomson wore a tee-shirt marked "I am not gay", just to make a point.Before him only one other athlete, the American Matthias, had ever won the decathlon twice.Son of an African immigrant and a Scottish mother, Thomson, who spent his childhood in a poor neighbourhood succeeded in his studies in biology. They were to help him in his management of the fortune that he earned throughout the stadiums of the world.
