Heikki Ilmari NIEMELÄINEN

Finnish diver and later architect Ilmari Niemeläinen took part in the 1936 and the 1948 Olympics at Berlin and London as a diver, but never reached a final in his competitions. He finished 13th from the springboard in 1936, and 14th from the platform. After World War II he came in 19th from the platform.
