Biography

Joseph Rond competed for the US tug-of-war team that finished fourth at the 1920 Antwerpen Olympics. Rond was born in Amsterdam but came to the United States as a youth with his parents. Rond was in the US Army in 1926 where he was a corporal in the 164th Company, MTC, stationed at Camp Funston in Fort Riley, Kansas. His year of birth is often seen as 1896, because Rond lied about his age to join the Army.
