PADDOCK Charles (1900-1943) United States / Track and Field
Charles Paddock, who was double Olympic champion of the 100 m and 4x100 m in 1920 in Antwerp, and won several silver medals over 200 m, was long considered to be the fastest man in the world. He could probably have done much better, but would have had to train more assiduously, which he always refused to do!Paddock joined the US army during the second world war and died in battle. He had become a national hero, and an American navy vessel was named in his honour.
