Looks like the International Olympic Committee has already corrected the record books to reflect Thorpe's Olympic victories for the decathlon and pentathlon events in Stockholm’s 1912 Olympic Games.
The Olympics website shows that Thorpe, Sac and Fox and Potawatomi, is the sole gold medal winner for the decathlon and pentathlon for the 1912 games Thursday afternoon.
He was the greatest athlete of his generation and the pride of Native America. Good for the Olympic committee to right an injustice
Thanks for sharing this! An injustice finally rectified!
He was the best athlete ever. Sad that it happened, sad that it took so long to correct.
