At the age of thirteen, Mike Burton, whose sporting activity up till then
had involved cross-country running, was involved in a cycling accident with
a truck. He severed tendons under his right knee and the ball joint of his
hip was forced into his rib cage. Doctors said he would never be able to
compete in sports again, but advised him to do a little swimming to strengthen
his leg muscles.

The youngest olympic men's figure skating champion at 18 years and 202 days
He once held a unique total of five simultaneous titles : the Olympic, World, North American, USA and European titles, (in 1948, when that was still open to all comers).
He was the first skater to perform a triple jump (three mid-air revolutions before landing). He also performed the first triple loop jump before the Oslo Olympic Games and began a new era of athleticism and jumping on skates.
After 1952 he turned professional and afterwards became a television commentator on skating.
