SAINT CYR Henri de (1902-1979) Sweden / Equestrian
Although he came from an old French family it was for Sweden that this horseman got his two consecutive Olympic titles for dressage. He won these in Helsinki in 1952 and in Stockholm in 1956.It should be pointed out that the equestrian events took place in Sweden because Australian custom regulations would not allow the horses into the country.O both occasions Henri de Saint Cyr beat the Danish horsewoman Lis Hartel who got both silver medals on her horse Jubilee. This champion had all the more merit in that she had overcome and attack of poliomyelitis a few years previously.
