One of the world's top sprinters at the brginning of the 20th century, Archie Hahn was a triple gold medalist at the 1904 Olympic Games in St. Louis, winning the 60-meter, 100-meter and 200-meter events, thus making him the first man to complete the 100-200 double in Olympic competition.

Hahn attended the University of Michigan from 1903 to 1905 and also competed for the Milwaukee Athletic Club. He won the U.S. 100-yard and 220 titles in 1903 and took another National AAU 220 title in 1905. His best time of 21.6 for the 200 meters was a world record from 1904 until 1921. He also was co-holder of the world 100-yard dash record with a 9.8 in 1901. Hahn coached at Princeton and Virginia and his book, "How to Sprint", was considered for years the classic text on how to run the dash events.
