Biography

After placing second in the decathlon and third in the pentathlon at the 1920 Olympic Trials, Everett Bradley surprisingly competed only in the pentathlon at Antwerp. At the Games, he finished second to Eero Lehtonen of Finland and beat the two men, Brutus Hamilton and Bob LeGendre, who had finished ahead of him at the U.S. Trials. After graduating from the University of Kansas with a geology degree, Bradley put it to good use with a consulting and oil producing company The company eventually made him a wealthy man and allowed him to spend his last years leisurely enjoying golf and flycasting. At age 72, the former oil operator was found dead in a pond near his house, still wearing his night clothing.

Personal Bests: JT – 155-7 (47.42) (1920); Decathlon – 6,138 (1920).
