Biography

Shuhei Nishida was particularly successful in the Student World Championships and the International University Games, the precursors of the Universiade, winning silver in 1928 and gold in 1930 and 1935. In 1930 he won the pole vault at the Far East Championships in Tokyo. In 1936 he and Sueo Oe jumped-off for the silver medal but then elected to share the medals. The Japanese team leaders decided to award the silver medal to Nishida as the elder and bronze to Oe. On their return, they cut both medals in half and put them together again as silver / bronze medals. In 1951, at 41-year-olds, Nishida was third at the Asian Games in New Delhi.

Nishida was educated at Waseda University as an engineer and worked for the Hitachi Group. Later he became an international referee, and in 1959 was appointed president of the Japanese Athletics Federation, eventually becoming an Honorary Vice-President and a member of the Japanese Olympic Committee. In 1989 he was awarded the Olympic Order in Silver. Nishida died of heart failure in 1997.
