JOHNNY KING, QUARTERBACK. Jackson Scholz. JOHNNY KING, QUARTERBACK.
New York: William Morow & Co. 1949. First edition. Scholz was an American track and field athlete who specialized in the sprint. In the 1920s, he became the first person to appear in an Olympic sprint final in three different Olympic Games. His first Olympic appearance was in Antwerp at the 1920 Summer Olympics, where he won a gold medal. Later that year, Scholz equaled the World Record in the 100 meter, running it in 10.6 seconds in Stockholm. Four years later, he was one of the favorites for the sprint titles in the 100 and 200 meters at the Paris Games. He lived up to expectations in the 200 meter, but was beaten to the gold in the 100 meter by Britain's Harold Abrahams. This defeat, depicted in the movie "Chariots of Fire," may be the feat for which Scholz is best known. Few tiny foxed spots on front inner hinge, otherwise fine in red cloth and dust jacket with minor edgewear and soiling.
