CRAIG Ralph (1889 - 1972) United States / Track and field
Had the American athlete been competing in today's Olympic events, he could never have become a double champion. His victory in the 200 m at the 1912 Stockholm games was uncontested, but in the 100 m, he was responsible for three of the seven false starts to the race. In today's games, the competitor is eliminated after two false starts, as British Olympic champion Lindford Christie found out to his bitter disappointment during the Atlanta games.After his athletic career, Craig trained as an engineer and devoted his time to sailing. He was part of the American team at the 1948 London games, though only as a substitute.
