Biography

Henry Graham SHARP

The British champion in 1934, Graham Sharp competed in the first of seven World Championships that year, finishing sixth. He improved on his sixth place in 1934, to finish fourth in the Worlds the following year. From 1936-38 he had the misfortune to finish runner-up in both the World and European Championships in each of those three years. However, he set the record straight in 1939, when he became the first Briton to win both Championships, and in capturing the World title, ended a run of 17 consecutive Austrian victories. On both occasions, he beat fellow Briton Freddie Tomlins into second place. Sharp won eight British titles, 1934-39, 1946 and 1948. He announced his retirement after finishing sixth in the 1948 World Championship.
