Jim Thorpe is the only athlete to win gold medals in both the decathlon and pentathlon, which he did in the 1912 Olympics at Stockhom. Thorpe is a Sauk and Fox tribal member of the Thunder Clan, but also of French and Irish descent. After seeing Thorpe race, King Gustav V of Sweden told him, "Sir, you are the greatest athlete in the world!" to which Thorpe replied, "Thanks, King."
