Biography

With five medals won at the 1920 Olympics, Julien Brulé is the most decorated Olympic archer at a single Olympics behind Hubert Van Innis. It should be noted though, that he achieved this in 1920, when there were nine Olympic archery events (compared to modern day’s four) and most competitions only featured entrants from two nations. Julien Brulé, who worked as a carpenter in daily life, competed in the Olympic target archery events. In those events, he competed against Van Innis, whom he beat in the individual 50 metre event. He lost to Van Innis in the 33 metre event, and added two silvers in team events (both times behind the Belgians) and a team bronze (behind the Netherlands and Belgium). Apart from his Olympic title, Brulé also won three French target archery titles, in 1914, 1921 and 1924. He later owned a café in Saint-Firmin, Nogent-sur-Oise.
