Biography

Georges Breitman was a French pole vaulter and decathlete whose best international performance was likely placing sixth at the 1946 European Championships in the vault. He also finished second in the pole vault at the World University Games in both 1947 and 1949. Breitman won the French pole vault title five times, in 1943-46 and 1953, and in 1949 set the French record with 4.115 for the vault at a meet in London. He competed at the 1948 Olympics in the pole vault and the 1952 Olympics in the decathlon, although he did not finish the decathlon at Helsinki. Breitman later became a doctor, like several in his family, but he continued competing in masters meets into his 80s, clearing 1.80 metres in the vault in 2001.
