The Mozart of sailing
Paul Elvstrom: Obituary

By Gary Jobson (As amended by World Sailing)

ElvstromTo be universally recognized as "the best" in any sport is extremely rare. But sailor Paul Elvstrom has earned this description. Over four consecutive Olympic Games he won four Gold medals. Only four other athletes, Carl Lewis (long jump), Steve Redgrave (rowing) and Al Oeter (discus) and one superstar sailor in Ben Ainslie have matched this feat.

Paul Elvstrom, more than any other sailor, has won on the racecourse, healed some painful wounds and has earned the respect of every sailor in the world as the "the best".

Paul Elvstrom Claim Back to Back Gold Medals - 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, Finn Class: https://www.olympic.org/videos/sailing/melbourne-stockholm-1956



CORRECTION
2016/12/09
the story on Paul Elvstrom stated that no other Olympic athlete had won more than four consecutive gold medals. Actually, two have: Hungarian Aladar Gerevich <HUN> in Fencing and Sir Steve Redgrave <GBR> in Rowing. As for those sitting on four, in addition to Elvstrom <DEN> there are Ben Ainslie <GBR> (sailing), Al Oerter <USA> (discus), Carl Lewis <USA> (long jump), Michael Phelps <USA> (200 meter swimming medley), and Kaori Icho <JPN> (woman's freestyle wrestling). Also, Elvstrom did not invent the self-bailer but he did design a widely used version.
