Centre-half Arthur Hill of Aston SC and Isaac Bentham of Wigan were the only members of Britain’s 1912 water polo team who won only one Olympic gold medal. All the other team members won a second gold, either in 1908 or 1920. Arthur Hill was, at 24, the youngest member of the 1912 gold medal winning team. He was also the youngest of eight children of Anna and James Hill, the landlord of the Leopard Inn, Brearley Street, Birmingham. Arthur was a silversmith by trade.
