Alexander Abraham never won a German Championship but was a versatile track and field athlete, who retired from competition in mid-1912 at the Olympic Games due to an injury, and then became a sports teacher and lecturer at the Deutsche Sportbund fÃ¼r Athletik (DSBfA). In his job he prepared German athletes for the 1916 Olympic Games, which did not take place due to World War I. He also wrote two textbooks Sportliche Gymnastik (Sporting Gymnastics) and Weg zur sportlichen HÃ¶chstleistung (Ways to Sports Records).
