O'BRIEN Dan (1966) United States / Track and field
O'Brien, who was decathlon world champion three times in the early 1990s is one of the most accomplished all round athletes of his generation.He was ousted from the Barcelona games in the course of the American selections, but made a comeback at Atlanta with no real competition.On that occasion he beat the Englishman Dailey Thomson's legendary record by getting close to the magic figure of 8900 points. However, it was fate that held that O'Brien's Olympic story would not have a happy ending. Having torn a muscle he was again absent from the American selection trials and thus could not participate in the Sydney games.
