KIELY Thomas (1869-1951) Ireland / Track and Field
At the St Louis Games in 1904, the decathlon as such did not yet exist (it was introduced in Stockholm in 1912). However, there were ten different competitions. And these were won by Kiely, an Irishman.Kiely could have had his fare to St Louis paid by Great Britain, but he preferred to buy his own ticket to give the Emerald Isle her first gold medal.
