Lindy John Remigino

American athlete Lindy John Remigino was born on June 3, 1931. At the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki, he won a gold medal in the 100-meter dash.

Born in Elmhurst, New York, Remigino's qualification for the 1952 Summer Olympics was already a surprise. Being hardly convincing in the major meets earlier in the year, he placed second at the Olympic trials.

In Helsinki, the Olympic 100 m final was one of the most exciting ever in the history of the event. All six athletes finished very close to each other, the times ranging from 10,4 for the first four to 10,5 for the fifth and sixth runners. Initially, Herb McKenley appeared to be the winner, beating Remigino on the line. However, examination of the finish photo showed Remigino had won the title.

Later in the Games, Remigino would win a second gold medal running for the American 4 x 100 m relay team that took first place.

After his running career, Remigino became a high school coach. His Hartford Public High School teams won 31 state titles in his 43 year career.
