Biography

Piero D’Inzeo was the older brother of Raimondo D’Inzeo. Like his younger brother, Piero won six Olympic medals, but unlike his brother, he never managed a gold. In 1960 at Rome, Piero was second to his brother in the individual show jumping competition. Piero D’Inzeo also won a team silver in show jumping in 1956 and four bronzes – individual jumping in 1956, and team jumping in 1960, 1964, and 1972. Piero did win the individual gold medal at the 1959 European Championships and also won a silver medal in 1958 and bronze in 1962 in that event. Piero competed at eight Olympics consecutively from 1948 to 1976, and he and his brother, Raimondo, were the first Olympians to compete in eight Olympics, a mark since bettered.
