“I have always liked sport and only played or run races for the fun of the thing.”
In Stockholm, in 1912, Thorpe became the first Native American to win gold medals. He did it in the pentathlon and the decathlon. Even while wearing a pair of found mismatched shoes after his own were stolen, the man born as Wa-Tho-Huk still blazed a bright path. His mythical powers of native athleticism were rooted to the earth, but the world now knew him.
Some celebrated. Many resisted him. He endured racial discrimination his whole life. Yet he ran past that, too. He ran his way to history.
Celebrate the greatest athlete of the 20th century, Jim Thorpe, with our throwback graphic 1912 tee!
