On July 7, he won the Olympic pentathlon. The next day, he finished tied for fourth in the high jump and on July 13, he came in seventh in the long jump. Then came the decathlon, and Thorpe set a world record with 8,412 points. The standard Thorpe set was so high that, if he had duplicated his marks 36 years later, they would have held up well enough to win a silver medal.
In 1916 his football team, the Canton Bulldogs, won their first of three unofficial national championships.
One of the best sports qoute's of all time. When Jim Thorpe won gold medals in the pentathlon and the decathlon in the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, King Gustav V said "You, sir, are the greatest athlete in the world. I would consider it an honor to shake your hand." Jim's reply "Thanks, King."
He also excelled in such diverse sports as basketball, boxing, lacrosse, swimming, and hockey.
Thorpe played six years of professional baseball as an outfielder for the New York Giants, the Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Braves.
I know the post is way long, but the man was unbelievable. It is amazing how many people do not think or know of him when talking about the greatest athlete.
Look the guy up.
