A Danish sailing legend, Paul Elvstrom won four Olympic gold medals over his 40-year Games career.
Elvstrom first competed at London 1948, where he claimed a gold medal in the Firefly class. This class evolved into the Finn monotype class, which he then won at the next three Olympic Games in 1952, 1956 and 1960.
Despite glory eluding him from this point, Elvstrom took part in another four Games. At his last two Games in 1984 and 1988, he competed together with his daughter, Trine – the only time a father and daughter have appeared together at the Games.
