Ivan Patzaichin (born 26 November 1949 – 5 September 2021) was a Romanian sprint canoeist. He was a four-time Olympic champion and a three-time Olympic silver medalist. He won 22 world championship medals, nine of which were gold medals.

Interesting Fact

One of Patzaichin's achievements remained a prominent event in the history due to an accident that happened to him during the Munich Olympics. At the very beginning of the race, Patzaichin broke his oar. Nevertheless, the judges decided to proceed with the race, forcing him to paddle with a piece of wood that remained from his oar. He managed to finish the race, placing second just 3 minutes behind the winner. After many discussions, the canoist was allowed to participate in the repechage. Patzaichin finished first, 3 seconds before the contestant from Czechia, having rowed 20 seconds faster than the winner of the series. He entered the final as a favourite, which he won with a 4 second lead.

Quote

I am certain I will return with a gold medal from one of my canoe races. It's not just a promise, it's a responsibility.
