Biography

Although shooting under international conditions which were strange to him, Jim Graham won two gold medals in trapshooting at the 1912 Olympics – to nobody’s surprise on the American team. He was the top American trapshooter of the time, having only a few years before run 432 birds straight. Graham turned professional shortly after the 1912 Olympics.
