1904 Olympic Games St. Louis, United States - Men's 100 m

 

 

Host City: St. Louis, United States Format: Top two finishers in each heat advanced to the final.
Date Started: September 3, 1904  
Date Finished: September 3, 1904  
(Competitors: 11; Countries: 3; Finalists: 6)  
    Venue(s): Francis Field, Washington University, St. Louis
Overview by IAAF  
The diminutive (1.68m) Hahn was the favourite, having earlier won the 60m and 200m. He started superbly and had gained a winning advantage by the 20m mark. The taller (1.78m) Cartmell closed by half a metre in the last quarter of the race, but had been outclassed by Hahn. The only non-American competitors, Béla de Mezo (HUN) and Robert Kerr (CAN), were both eliminated in the heats.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
By now, Archie Hahn was a heavy favorite, as he had already won the 60 and 200 metre events. Hahn was again off ahead at the start, and opened a lead of three yards in the first 20 metres. Nate Cartmell got off to his usual poor start and was last at 40 metres, but closed rapidly again to finish second, 1½ yards back of Hahn.
Hahn had won the sprint double at the 1903 U.S. and Canadian championships, and he again won the AAU 220 in 1905. Though he was only 5-6, in 1906 he would become the first person to win the Olympic 100 twice, a feat not duplicated until 1984-88 by Carl Lewis. He later became a track coach, first at Princeton and then at the University of Virginia, and his book, How to Sprint, is considered a classic.
