ALBRITLON David Etats-Unis / Track and field
Despite his failure to become an Olympic champion, having to settle for silver in the high jump at the 1936 Berlin games, his name nonetheless goes down in history as being the pioneer of the straddle technique. This style remained popular until the early 1970s, when Dick Fosbury, 1968 gold medallist at Mexico, revolutionised high jumping with the what became known as the Fosbury flop.
