TSUKAHARA Mitsuo (1947) Japan / Gymnastics
Although this gymnast was a vaulting horse specialist, as a member of the Japanese team that became Olympic champions in Mexico in 1968, Munich in 1972 and Montreal in 1976 he won two other gold medals at the fixed bar, the first in Munich 1972 and the other in Montreal. An inventor of very novel movements, he was not able to win the individual all-round competition. Before becoming national coach, Tsukahara endowed the discipline with a vaulting horse movement and a movement for dismounting the apparatus which carries his name.
