HARY Armin (1937), Germany / Track and Field
This white sprinter had a special physiological ability that enabled him to hear the starter's gun before anyone else. This advantage meant that he could start a few hundredths of a second before his rivals and win races. Long accused of cheating, Armin Hary nevertheless became Olympic title holder in the 100 metres at1960 Rome games. He was also the first sprinter to have ever covered the distance in 10 seconds flat.
