Biography

Patrick Henry MARTIN

Pat Martin was the first American to win three Winter Olympic medals. Besides his Olympic medals, he can count among his bobsled trophies two North American 2-man titles (1951 and 1956), three North American 4-man titles (1951, 1953 and 1956), three AAU 2-man championships (1955-57), and six AAU 4-man championships (1940, 1941, 1953-54 and 1956-57). Martin won all his titles representing the Sno Birds of Lake Placid. One of his teammates on the 1940 AAU 4-man sled was Katharine Dewey, the only time a woman has won a major national sledding title. Pat Martin later became a policeman in his hometown of Messena, New York.
