Biography

At the 1920 Antwerpen Olympics, Maurice Delvart won a bronze medal with the French team in the 4x400 relay. In the 400 metre individual event, however, he failed to get out of the first round. Nationally Delvart was runner-up at the French Championships in 1919, 1920 and 1922, and during this time represented France at nine international meetings. He also set a world record over the rarely contested 500 metre distance.

Personal Best: 400 – 50.1e (1922).
