William Knyvett (athlete)
Reaching the semi-finals of the 110 metre hurdles competition, he finished with the second fastest time overall of all the semi-final heats. Nevertheless, as he was second in his heat, he was eliminated. The winner of his heat, Forrest Smithson of the USA, went on to win the Olympic Gold Medal in the final.
