POILVE Emile (1903-1962) France / Wrestling
This fellow was as strong as an ox, and easily won the free style wrestling title in the middleweight category in Berlin in 1936, beating a German wrestler. The Nazis looked on this as an unforgivable insult to Germany, and to make a mockery of the Frenchman's victory the German officials raised the Turkish flag and played the Egyptian anthem when he was given the gold medal.
