Biographie

Cyril Walter HORN

A two-time Olympian in speed skating in 1924 and 1928, Horn started in fen skating and was winner of four British Championships held between 1927 and 1933. He also held a number of records over mile distances and won several fen skating trophies. Horn competed in the 1928 World Championships but failed to finish. In the early 1920s Horn and his brother Dennis started cycling and soon were successful in this sport as well. They won British Championships in cycling and were candidates for the 1936 Olympic team. Even though considered amateurs both earned a considerable amount of money from expenses, prize money, etc. Cyril Horn spent his childhood in Upwell, Norfolk. He left school and started working together with his father, a blacksmith, producing horseshoes for the British Army during WW I. In the mid-1940s, Cyril Horn bought a farm in the village of Outwell, Norfolk.
