LEMMING Erick (1880 - 1930) Sweden / Track and field
This Swedish athlete found his true vocation in the javelin.At the Paris games in 1900, Lemming proved to be a versatile sportsman by excelling at the pole vault, the high jump and the discus. But he revolutionized the javelin competition by throwing it like a spear, whereas the other competitors threw it with two hands, holding the end.This technique earned him two Olympic titles in 1908 and at home in Stockholm in 1912.
