His time of 21.4 sec was an Olympic record until 1932, but that may have been because the race was run on a straight course. He was fortunate in his final in that three rivals were penalized one yard for making a false start after he had been somewhat restive on his marks. He won convincingly by three metres.
He also won the 100 m at the interim games of 1906. He was known as the 'Milwaukee Meteor'.
