PRINSTEIN Myer (1880-1925) United States / Track and field
Prinstein, who was unfairly deprived of the Olympic title for the long jump in the 1900 Paris games went on a few days later to win the gold medal for the triple jump.What happened is that during the long jump contest the organisers decided to interrupt the event and resume it on the following day, which was a Sunday. Prinstein, who had strong religious convictions, refused to take part on the Sabbath. Four years later in Saint Louis he did become double Olympic champion of the long jump an the triple jump and retained the title.
