Ray Barbuti

Raymond J. "Ray" Barbuti was born on June 12, 1905. He was an American athlete and American football player, winner of two gold medals at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam.

Ray Barbuti was born in Nassau County, New York and attended Syracuse University where he won the IC4A championship at 400 m in 1928 in a time of 48.8 and once scored eight touchdowns in one game. In the same year, he won the AAU Championsip in the 400 m dash with a time of 51.4.

His trainer let him run two his preferred distances, the 200 yd and the 400 yd, very seldom in the same competition, so Barbuti chose to run only the 400 m at the 1928 Summer Olympics. He won 400 m with a time of 47.8 and as anchor on the US 4 x 400 m relay he won his second gold medal in a world record time of 3:14.2.
