TOLAN Edward (1908-1967) United States / Track and Field
Eddy Tolan, the top sprinter in Los Angeles in 1932, won the 100 m and 200 m events.In the former event he beat his opponent by such a narrow margin that he was nicknamed "twinkle toes".In the 200 m he again beat his rival Metcalfe, but the judges made a mistake in calculating the length of the latter's corridor. Metcalfe could have objected, but in a fine spirit of sportsmanship he chose not to frustrate his fellow countryman's victory.
