In 1928 Chuhei Nanbu was ninth in the triple jump and fourth in the long jump and started in the 4x100 relay. In Los Angeles he won medals in the triple jump (gold) and long jump (bronze), finishing fifth with the sprint relay. He was the first athlete to simultaneously hold the world records in the long and triple jump. An accomplished sprinter, Nanbu won the 100 metres at the 1930 and 1933 Japanese Championships and in 1931 set a Japanese record with 10.6 seconds. At the Far Eastern Games Nanbu won one gold, two silver and three bronze medals.

A native of Sapporo in Northern Japan, Nanbu practiced indoors during the winter, often running up and down the stairs in department stores. He then studied at the prestigious Waseda University. He later became coach, sports official and sports editor for the newspaper Mainichi Shimbun, and also worked as a university professor and president. In 1964 he was the manager of the Japanese Olympic team. In 1983 Nanbu was awarded the Olympic Order in Silver. His name is written in many sources as Nambu.
