JOHANSSON Ingemar (1932), Sweden / Boxing
This Swedish boxer created a precedent at the Helsinki games in 1952 when he was refused the medal he had won in the heavyweight category. Because he had not fought with all the determination one would expect from a champion, the judges refused to give him his medal after his fight with the Olympic title holder, Ed Sanders. He was reinstated thirty years later. In the meantime, he had defended his World champion title twice in professional fights.
