One of the greatest sprinters in U.S. history, Scholz lettered at MU in 1917-18-20, and was a member of three American Olympic teams -
nearly unheard of in the sport of track and field. He's one of two Tiger athletes to have won a gold medal in Olympic competition, and he did it twice -
as a member of the 440-yard relay team in the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium, and in the 200 meter dash in the 1924 Games in Paris, France. He also won a silver medal in the 100-meter dash in 1924, and placed fourth in the 200-meter dash in 1928, in Amsterdam, Holland. Scholz was the American sprinter who was featured in the movie "Chariots of Fire." During his career, at one time or another, he held or tied world records in the 50-, 70-, and 75 yard dashes, and the 100-meter dash.
