Biographie

Kenkichi OSHIMA

Kenkichi Oshima was the triple jump favorite at Los Angeles in 1932 but suffered severe burns in a bathing accident shortly before the Olympics and was not in the best form, but he secured the bronze medal in Los Angeles and was sixth in 1936 in Berlin, where he carried the Japanese flag at the Opening Ceremony. After his competitive career, Oshima graduated from Kansai University and then became a sports journalist with the daily newspaper Mainichi Shimbun and later a professor at the Sport University in Osaka. From 1949 he was a member of the Japanese Olympic Committee and helped prepare the Japanese team for the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. In 1982 Oshima received the Hans-Heinrich Sievert Award and in 1985 the Olympic Order in Silver. He was also the author of numerous books on sports.

Personal Best\: TJ – 15.63 (1934).
