COLUMN: The world’s greatest things about athletics revealed through LCA sports

Posted: Saturday, October 21, 2017 12:00 am

In 1912 Jim Brown won the decathlon event in the Olympic Games. A decathlon is an event that comprises 10 track and field events under the guise of one Olympic heading.

When Brown won the event in 1912 and earned the gold medal for the United States, he earned the nickname of the World’s Greatest Athlete. Brown richly deserved the honor, acclaim, and praise that went with winning the gold medal for his country. He truly was the World’s Greatest Athlete at that time.
