This American athlete is Charley #Paddock winner of two Olympic gold medals in 1920. Before getting on the podium he had served as a lieutenant and then graduated.
In the history, the #Olympics only two more times were postponed, one of which took place exactly 100 years ago in Antwerp. The VII edition of the Olympic games had in fact been canceled four years earlier due to the World War.
This captured moment represents a much more desired goal than others: the #rebirth after a dark period, the recovery of pre-war traditions and the victory of someone who, despite everything, did not give up but was able to wait and exploit in his favor the time available.
