The 1928 Olympic Games – Strength Magazine – April, 1928

Is professionalism going to be the ruination of the greatest of all athletic meets? There has been considerable talk about it, proving there are some who seem to think that the Olympic Games and, in fact, practically all amateur athletics, are doomed. While it is yet to be seen (and hardly probable from this writer’s point of view), nevertheless, like all beliefs, there are reasons for it. On the other hand, things do point toward the death of amateur athletics, at least as far as the star athletes of the world are concerned.
