Biography

Frank Kriz was from California and was one of our country’s greatest gymnasts in the 20s. His gold medal in the horse vault was won in slightly unusual circumstances, as the event was not held according to strict international rules, but more closely resembled a high jump competition. In addition to his Olympic medal, Kriz won five National Championships – all-around in 1922 and 1924, floor exercises in 1924, horse vault in 1922, and parallel bars in 1922. Kriz spent many years with the New York Fire Department.
