He went to 4 non-consecutive Olympics and wons medals in all of them. Rumor has it he's still alive, too. He never got any credit while he was competing and probably still doesn't get any support from anybody. The Russians ranked him as one of the 5 best athletes in the world at one time, though, or something like that, according to a Sports Illustrated article I read. Paul Anderson, of course, was stronger than Schemansky, but his career was much shorter because he turned pro.
