DESJARDINS "Pete" Ulise (1907 - 1985) Etats-Unis / Plongeon
This very small diver, born in Canada but holding American citizenship, dominated the diving events at the Amsterdam games of 1928.Having already won silver in Paris in1924 behind fellow American White, a two times Olympic diving champion, Desjardins won gold in Amsterdam. He himself was also two times Olympic champion, for the high dive and 3 m springboard.It should be noted that in the high diving event, Desjardins was beaten by the Egyptian Simaika. However, the latter was relegated in the standings due most likely to a fault committed allowing Desjardins to win.
