Harry Livingston Hillman Jr.

B. 1881-09-08, USA; D. 1945-08-09
Track and Field (3 gold, 1 silver)

At St Louis, Hillman tripped one hurdle in the 400 m, which meant that his time of 53 sec could not be counted as a world record (the record stood at 57.2 sec since 1891). To which it must be added that the race was run over too low hurdles (76 cm in stead of the normal 92!).
Hillman developed the modern hurdle (L-shaped) to replace the T-shape.
The final of the 400m flat was run with all 13 competitors.
