MALLIN "Harry" Henry (1892 - 1969) Great Britain / Boxing
This English boxer was twice Olympic champion in the middleweight category in 1920 in Antwerp and four years later in Paris. Whilst his first victory was not contested, his second success in Paris was, and greatly so.Faced with the Frenchman Brousse in the quarter-finals, the Englishman won after a very contentious decision made by officials even though two of the three referees classed him as beaten.From then on, he was booed by the Parisian public at the winter Velodrome crowd right up to the final where he beat his countryman Elliot.
