Seedling, Urho Karhumäki’s Olympic Oak, Tervalampi, Finland. In 1936 Olympic Medals were still awarded in what was called The Arts Competitions where artists competed in categories such as sculpture, drawing, painting and architecture. Karhumäki was awarded Gold in the poetry competition for his composition Avoveteen (Into free water). Today only a stump remains at the corner of the small, private graveyard where Karhumäki is buried

Seedling, Cornelius Johnson’s Olympic Oak, Koreatown, Los Angeles, United States of America. Growing in what was probably the back yard of the athlete’s mother. Difficult to find, this tree was mentioned in a Los Angeles Times article dated 2007. Cornelius Johnson received one of several Gold Medals won by African Americans at the games. He returned to the US where racial segregation was practised until 1964. Johnson died in 1946

Seedling, Jack Lovelock’s Olympic Oak, Timaru Boys’ High School, Timaru, New Zealand. Featured in Leni Riefenstahl’s (1938 film) Olympia, Lovelock set a new world record and won Gold in what some regard as one of the finest 1500m Olympic finals of all time. In his thesis James Constandt refers to Lovelock entrusting his seedling into the care of teammate Cecil Matthews to deliver it home to New Zealand. By the time it arrived it was in poor condition but was nursed back to health and in 1941 was planted at Timaru Boys’ High School
