Biography

Robert PASEMANN

German Robert Pasemann was nominated for the London Olympics as a high jumper and gymnast, but shortly before the games broke both his arms while training for gymnastics and could not start. This injury led to his track and field career as he could no longer practice gymnastics. Pasemann was British AAA champion in the high jump and pole vault in 1911. In 1912 he finished eighth in the long jump and eleventh in the pole vault at Stockholm. He won several German national titles – 1909 and 1910 in high jump, 1909-11 in pole vault, and 1911-12 in long jump. He also set 19 German records and was the first German to better 1.80 and 1.90 in the high jump, was the first German over 3.50 m in the pole vault, and first German over 7.00 metres in the long jump.

Pasemann was educated as a civil engineer, but later worked as a sports teacher. He was one of the earliest known vegetarian athletes in Germany.

Personal Bests\: PV – 3.79 (1913); LJ – 7.10 (1911).
