1932 Albans Angeles Athlete Athletes Champion Medallist Olympic Olympics Returns Teacher Tommy Winner Hampson


EDITORS COMMENTS
In this historic photograph, Thomas "Tommy" Hampson (1897-1965), a British athlete and the gold medallist in the 800 metres at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, is warmly welcomed home by the boys of St. Albans School where he had been a beloved teacher before his Olympic victory. The image captures the excitement and pride of the community as they celebrate Hampson's achievement. Dressed in his Olympic uniform, Hampson is carried aloft on the shoulders of the boys, who cheer and clap in jubilation. The scene is a testament to the impact of Hampson's athletic prowess and his connection to his students. The year was 1932, and this moment marked a significant milestone in the history of British athletics. Hampson's Olympic triumph brought glory to St. Albans School and inspired a new generation of athletes. This photograph is a poignant reminder of the power of sports to bring people together and create lasting memories.
