SCHILLES Maurice (1888 - 1950) France / Cycling
A clause in the Olympic regulations deprived the French cyclist Maurice Schilles of a second gold medal at the 1908 Olympic games in London.Following his victory on the tandem with his partner André Auffray the judges considered that he had exceeded the time limit in the speed event. It must be pointed out that owing to the tactical conditions of the race he had to wait for his rival to take off before attacking, and his rival never did take off.Schilles consoled himself by going on to win another silver medal for the 5000 m race.
