Long-distance runner and race walker Hermann Müller won a silver medal at the 1906 Olympic Games in Athina in the 3 km race walk. He also finished ninth in the marathon and did not finish the 5 mile run after being lapped. He was nominated to start at the 1908 Olympic Games in London, but could not travel to London due to a court date in Berlin. In 1911 he was banned “for life” as, unemployed at the time, he had brought trophies and award prizes to a pawnshop, which was viewed as a violation of amateur status. Domestically, Müller won the 1910 national title in the 3 km walk, the 1921 title in the 5K and 50K walks. He also set four world records. By profession he was a mechanic.

Personal Bests: 3000W – 12:37.6 (1911); Mar – unknown.
