America’s Victorious Olympic Team And Why They Did Not Make More Points In Antwerp – Strength Magazine – November, 1920

America’s athletes have returned victorious from Antwerp, Belgium, where they won the world title in amateur sports for the United States. The public is pleased with their success and proud of the fact that in the eyes of the whole world we still hold the highest position in athletic strength and skill. Followers of sport are also glad of our victory but they cannot but feel that something must be wrong when the greatest team we ever sent abroad scored fewer points in comparison than their less balanced predecessors. Those fortunate enough to make the trip are best fitted to explain why our grand point total was not 250 instead of 210.
