He was the initial person to gain silver medals in separate occasions at both summer and wintertime Olympics: in light-heavyweight boxing in 1920, and in the four-man bobsled in 1932. He was a gifted pupil, and studied laws at both Harvard and Oxford before his athletic profession. After his Olympic times, he offered for his nation in World Battle II. He was created in Denver, Colorado. He became a member of Gillis Grafstrom as the just people to earn precious metal medals in the summertime and wintertime Olympics, but since Grafstrom gained both in the same event, he held his very own record.
