Very little is known about Georg Hilmar, whose name is also seen as Hillmar, but his name is seen with a single l on a postcard he sent from Athens. Hilmar was only a substitute for the German gymnastics team, replacing the injured Richard Gadebusch two days before they left for Greece. After their return home, most team participants were excluded from the reactionary German Gymnastics Association as they were “involved in a sporting event dedicated to internationalism.” The winning teams were banned from national competitions in Berlin. Hilmar was born in the autumn of 1876, and died in 1911.
