Biography

The 1932 Olympic springboard competition uniquely featured three brothers competing: Federico, Alonso and Antonio Mariscal. While they didn't leave a lasting impression on the competition (finishing 10th, 12th and 13th in a field of 13), the brothers were top divers in Central America. At the 1930 Central American and Caribbean Games, Federico and Antonio finished 1-2 in the 5 m platform event. At the next edition of these Games, in 1935, it was Antonio who won the event in front of Alonso, while placing 2nd in the 3 m springboard. Meanwhile, Antonio completed his studies and started working as a lawyer. He also became very active as a sports administrator. He was president of the Mexican Swimming Federation (1960-1966), a technical committee member of FINA for diving and active in the regional swimming federations for Central America and the Caribbean and the Americas. He was a long-time member of the Mexican Olympic Committee (1948-2010), including a stint as vice-president, and was on the board of the Pan American Sports Organization (which stages the Pan American Games). Antonio Mariscal was honoured for his contributions to sports with an Olympic Order in Silver, awarded in 1988.
