Biography

Ioannis GEORGIADIS

Georgiadis, from Tripolis, was the second Greek Olympic champion, as Leon Pyrgos won his title earlier the same day. Georgiadis was lucky that the sabre event was restarted upon the arrival of the Greek Royal Family, having already lost to Austria's Schmal. He won all his bouts in the new competition. Georgiadis wished to defend his Olympic title in Paris, but had to forfeit because of an injury. He did regain his title in 1906, at the Intercalated Games, although other competitors claimed he was favoured by the Greek judges. Georgiadis, who made a final Olympic appearance in 1924, became a professor of forensics at the University of Athens (1912). He founded Athens' morgue and worked for the national criminological laboratory. He was also a board member of the Greek National Olympic Committee between 1918 and 1936 (with a few interruptions).
