Biography

Of Russian-Jewish origin, Tola Vologe was a multi-talented athlete. He competed internationally for France in field hockey, track and field and table tennis. He picked up field hockey while studying in Britain, and participated with the French team in the 1936 Olympics. Winning the French 4 x 400 m relay title three times, Vologe was a prominent member of the LOU, a Lyon sports club. In May 1944, Vologe was arrested in a bar by local militia. Allegedly imprisoned by a former German field hockey captain, Vologe was shot four days after his arrest, supposedly for attempting to escape. Today, the training field of the Olympique Lyonnais football club is named in his honour.
