Biography

Georg Hoffmann, a swimmer and diver from Berlin, won the silver medal in the 100 yard backstroke behind his teammate [Walter Brack] and ahead of [Georg Zacharias]. This was the first time the 100 back was swum in Olympic competition as there was no backstroke in 1896 and only a 200 backstroke in 1900. Hoffmann also competed in the 440 yard breaststroke, and finished fourth behind fellow teammates, Zacharias and Brack, and third-placed [Jam Handy] from Chicago, who later became the last surviving medalist of the 1904 Olympic Games.

Hoffmann also won a silver medal in springboard diving. Two years later in Athina he again won a silver medal as a platform diver, behind his fellow teammate [Gottlob Walz]. Hoffmann also participated in the 100 metre freestyle in 1906, but was eliminated in the heats.
