Ha,ha. He was a commentator over here and was quite good at that too. I think most of the olympian gold medallists were super men and women. Even making it as an olympian is quite a feat. Hats off to all of them.

Peace.G.
Dear Graham,
I may be incorrect here .The Jim Thorpe qouted herein as a superman was an incredible athlete.He won Decathlon/played American sports.His life story was made into a film starring Burt Lancaster.He was possibly part Red Indian heritage.No known date of birth.
Sad to say he died almost penniless.I doubt if he was a commentator .
Cheers, Joe.
