Biography

Hermann Weingärtner was one Germany's best gymnasts of the 19th century, and probably the best gymnast in Athens. With the German team, he won two Olympic titles, and he added an individual one in the horizontal bar, as well as two second places and a third. His second place in the rings event was a close one: with the jury deadlock on a decision, Greek prince Georgios cast the deciding vote in favour of his compatriot Mitropoulos. Weingärtner was a merchant, and later took over management of a swimming pool in Frankfurt am Oder, which has been established by his father. He drowned in the Oder trying to save another person.
