Biographie

Henry PETERSEN

After his silver medal in Antwerpen in 1920, Henry Petersen again took part at the 1924 Paris Olympics, finishing only fourth although he jumped 20 cm higher. Shortly before the 1928 Games, Petersen had to give up his career after acquiring tuberculosis. At home he was Danish Champion in 1920-21, 1923, and 1925-27. He also bettered the Danish record in the pole vault eight times from 3.69 in 1919 to 4.03 in 1925. He was also a three-time champion in the sprint relay (1919-20, 1922). In addition to athletics, Petersen competed in gymnastics and was a five-time Danish team champion between 1921 and 1927. He was an engineer by profession.
