Wigan Swimming and Water Polo (17) / Wigan Water Polo Club's Internationals

Comments by Sally K, 25th Feb 2015

Hugely interesting fact - Great Britain were the WINNING team at the 1908 London Olympics, and G. Nevison and C. Smith (from this photo) were on the team. Wigan can be proud of its OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL WINNERS! :D

It just gets more fascinating - George Nevison and Charles Smith won OLYMPIC GOLD with the GB Water Polo team in the London 1908 Olympic games. I've just discovered www.waterpololegends.com, which is a fabulous blog with a few further images, including a VIDEO of a 1908 Olympics match and a match review of the final. There are also a few further photos of the Wigan team of the era in different sections on this site. Fascinating! :)
