Question 34.The survival story!!

25 Oct

He is Mr.R. Norris Williams.He was born in Geneva In 1891.

Williams is best known for his two victories at the U.S. Championships in 1914 and 1916. He was also on the victorious American Davis Cup team twice: in 1925 and 1926 and was considered a fine doubles player. He also had a reputation in singles of always hitting as hard as possible and always trying to hit winners near the lines. This made him an extremely erratic player, but when his game was sporadically “on”, he was considered unbeatable.

During the fabled 1924 Olympics, at the age of 33 (and with a sprained ankle), Richard Norris Williams became a Gold Medalist in the mixed doubles.

But he is more famous because of a Tragic incident he survived.He was among some of those few who survived.

The question is pretty simple.Just guess the tragic incident being talked about.

Hint:The year dates mentioned are a give away.
