It’s definitely the SAFEST camp I know. The many spotting set-ups are astonishing.

American Olympic medal sweep

Men’s Rope Climbing

1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles

BassGOLD – Raymond Bass USA
SILVER – William Galbraith USA
BRONZE – Thomas Connolly USA

The event consisted of climbing an 8-meter-high rope, and was contested on time. All competitors were given three tries, with the fastest times determining the placements.

Sports Reference

There were only 5 competitors.

Rope Climbing was discontinued after 1932.

Peter Kormann was the first American to win an Olympic medal in the “modern” Olympics. 1976 Montreal.

It was Peter who alerted me to this USA Olympic medal sweep. We were visiting his Yellow Jackets new gym. The very first day of opening.
