SCHOLLANDER Donald (1946) United States / Swimming
Donald Schollander, dubbed "the blond god", showered the 1964 Tokyo games with his talent when he won four gold medals in the 100 m, 400 m, 4x100 m and 4x200 free style events. The only event he did not win that year was the 200 m, and that was for a good reason: it was not on the programme at the Japanese games. The previous year Schollander set a new world record for that distance at under 2 minutes.The American swimmer was to win a fifth gold medal in Mexico in partnership with others in the American free style 4x100 m relay team.At the tender age of 24 years old, he became the youngest member of the IOC, and wrote a book about the Olympic ideology.
