Barney Berlinger (1933)


American decathlete who competed in the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam and won the James E. Sullivan Award in 1931. Due to his versatility and key roles in his athletics teams, Berlinger was at times called a "one-man track team".

In addition to competing in many track and field events, he played both football and basketball and dabbled in wrestling, boxing and baseball.

During his working life, Berlinger was issued with several patents, for example one for 'continuous shaft brake for fishing reels' in 1940.

He died of heart failure at his home in Carversville, Pennsylvania on 2 December 2002, aged 94.
