Considered by many to be the greatest modern Olympic competitor, discus thrower Al Oerter is the only athlete to win four gold medals at four successive Olympiads. He won the Gold in Melbourne in 1956, Rome in 1960, Tokyo in 1964, and Mexico City in 1968, even though he was never the favorite and had never won the Olympic trials. He had been throwing the discus less than five years when he competed in his first Olympic Games. Then, at age 20, on his first throw in the finals, he broke the Olympic record and won the gold medal. Despite a string of serious injuries, Oerter made it back to the Olympics three more times and broke numerous world records. He is a member of the Olympic Hall of Fame.
