Biography

In 1920, First Lieutenant Lloyd Spooner of the U.S. Army’s 47th Infantry competed in 12 events at the Antwerp Olympic Games – an absolute record for the most events participated in at one Olympics. As above, he won seven medals in these events, which also stood as a record until the 1980 Olympics when the USSR’s Aleksandr Dityatin won eight gymnastics medals. It remains an American record, tied in 1972 by Mark Spitz. Spooner was a career army officer who was promoted to captain in 1924.
