- Warren Kealoha
At the age of 16, Warren Kealoha of Hawaii won his first Olympic title and four years later became the first man to win two Olympic backstroke gold medals. He held the world 100m backstroke record for six years, setting his first world record in winning the Olympic title in 1920 and his fourth world record in Honolulu in 1926. This final record was short-lived – the following day Walter Laufer, who was on a European tour, bettered Kealoha’s mark. Kealoha later became a successful rancher. It is often written that Warren and Pua Kealoha were brothers but they were not, and research has not found any direct relationship between the two.
Records may have been broken subsequently during the same competition.
Name previously given as Warren Paoa Kealoha and YOB as 1904, but they are not correct per US passport applications and his gravestone. He is not related to Pua Kele Kealoha.
