He should probably have won 3 golds but circumstances went against him. However, great and rightfully celebrated athlete though he was, Sonia and the O'Donovans are in a different league.

All three are from "pure" Olympic sports (athletics, track and field, rowing, swimming etc.) but times have moved on from Dr. Pat.
