BLEIBTREY Ethelda (1902 - 1978) United States / Swimming
This American swimmer was the heroine of the 1920 Antwerp games. She won three gold medals, breaking three records in the process for the 100 m, 300 m and 4x100 m free-style. Her Olympic success went a long way to restoring her good name in the eyes of the American public, who had criticised her for being arrested a few months prior to the games.She had been accused of swimming naked in a swimming pool ...when in fact she had done nothing more than take off her stockings!
