AUSTIN Charles (1972) United States / Track and field
Before the 1996 Atlanta games, the American high-jumper had not yet proved his worth. But it was his sheer determination to become an Olympic champion which led him to take the greatest risks. He failed at the lower level jumps, before attempting 2,39 m. This time, his determination paid off, and challenged Sotomayor, the Brazilian title holder.The Americans had not dominated in the high jump for almost 20 years, when Fosbury had pioneered the technique which led Austin to his victory.
