THUNBERG Clas (1893-1973) Finland / Speed skating
With five world titles and as many Olympic titles to his credit in the 1920s, this Finn was undoubtedly one of the finest speed skaters of his generation.His Olympic titles were won in Chamonix and in Saint Moritz in 1924 and 1928.He might have added more medals to this record in Lake Placid in 1932 but refused to take part in the events, because he believed the starting system set up by the Americans was open to trickery.He may have been right: all four events were won by the Americans Shea and Jaffee.
