BROOKES William Great Britain
Last century, Dr. William Brookes was the founder of an Olympic association based in the small English town of Much Wenloch, thus giving the county's inhabitants access to outdoor sporting activities. These rather unorthodox Olympics were extremely popular among the locals.It is worth mentioning that Pierre de Coubertin and Doctor Brookes had met, and kept up a longstanding correspondence. It can therefore be presumed that Dr. Brookes had contributed to the revival of the Olympic movement.
