Summary

This was the most popular of the sculpturing events, drawing well over 100 entries. The jury deemed the quality of the entries to be high, as they awarded all three medals, as well as 14 honorable mentions. The winner was Farpi Vignoli, a Bolognese sculptor. As a youth, he had lived close to a racecourse, providing him inspiration for his winning entry, Guidatore di sulky (Sulky Driver), during a period in which he mainly made sports sculptures. The original statue is now in the Tokyo Museum, but a number of copies have been made as well. Silver medalist Arno Breker was a popular sculptor within the Nazi Regime. His medal winning statue, Zehnkampfer (Decathlete), currently still adorns the Berlin Olympic Stadium. The bronze medal, finally, went to Stig Blomberg of Sweden, who was also known as a book illustrator, going by the name of T. Arvidsson.
