Biography

Jean GOUNOT

Jean Gounot won the bronze medal in the all-around individual in 1920, and at Paris in 1924 added two silvers in all-around team and side horse, tied with François Gangloff. In 1928 his team just missed a medal, placing fourth. He was again nominated for the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles, but the French federation had to refrain from participating for financial reasons. At the World Championships in 1922, 1926 and 1930, Gounot won medals in the all-around team event.

Gounot started competing at the age of 16. During World War I, he was part of the French expedition to the Dardanelles. After the war he worked as a cutter and toolmaker and gym instructor. In 1968 he was one of the veterans carrying the Olympic Torch to Grenoble.
