    November 25, 1904 – July 7, 1964

    Discus toss. One of the select Olympic evens that harken back to ancient times. Of course, there are some differences:

    In ancient times, women were not allowed to compete.

    In ancient times, there were no medals.

    In ancient times, athletes were naked.

    In ancient times, Jews did not participate.

    So, we have no idea how the ancient Greeks would have comprehended Lilian Copeland: female, gold medalist, (clothed) Jew. Copeland won for the discus in 1932, becoming the first Jewish woman to take individual Olympic gold.

    After retiring from sport, Copeland became a policewoman.

    Police officers. One of the select professions that harken back to ancient times...

    Verdict: Jew.
