Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Winter (3 December 1924 - 5 December 2007) was an Australian high jumper who won that event at the 1948 Summer Olympics in London with a jump of 1.98 metres (6 ft. 6 in.). A 23-year-old bank teller, Winter won Australia's first, and to this day only Olympic high jump gold medal. Winter's potential was first seen as a 15-year-old in the 1940 Interschool Carnival for Scotch College, Perth. He cleared 1.79 m. (5 ft. 10 in.) to win the under 16 event and 1.85 m. (6 ft. 0 in.) to win the open event.show more
