  • Henry Norwood "Barney" Ewell (February 25, 1918 – April 4, 1996) was an American athlete, winner of one gold and two silver medals at the 1948 Summer Olympics. Born into poverty in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Barney Ewell was one of the world's leading sprinters of the 1940s. Mr. Ewell attended John Piersol McCaskey High School in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. McCaskey High School honored Mr. Ewell by dedicating their stadium in his name. Mr. Ewell was also inducted into the J.P. McCaskey Athletic Hall of Fame during the school's 50th anniversary year in 1988. He was the state's greatest high school sprinter-jumper in the mid-1930s, but he first achieved renown while a student at Pennsylvania State University, running the 100 m and 200 m races and winning 12 gold medals and championships in collegiate meets between 1940 and 1942. He also won 11 gold medals in AAU national meets between 1939 and 1948. He was an outstanding long jumper as well, leaping 25 feet 2 inches (7.68 m) in 1942. He served his country during the years 1941 - 1945, returned to the university and received his B.S. degree in 1947. He surprised everyone by making the 1948 Olympic team, equaling the world record of 10.2 in the 100 m dash at the 1948 AAU championship, which was also the Olympic trials. At the Olympic Games in London, he thought he had won the 100 m only to learn the victory was given to teammate Harrison Dillard. In the 200 m, Ewell had another close finish and again finished second - this time to teammate Mel Patton. He was added to the 4 × 100 m relay when Ed Conwell became sick and the American team rolled to an easy victory. However, the exchange between Ewell and Lorenzo Wright was ruled out of the zone and the American team was disqualified. After viewing a film of the race, however, officials reversed the ruling, and Barney Ewell finally had his Olympic gold medal. Barney Ewell took part in the Scottish Border games circuit during the summer of 1950. He lived most of those weeks in the town of Bathgate. He won one of the most prestigious sprints on the Border Games circuit at Jedburgh. Running off scratch over 120 yards he ran a time of 11.37 secs. He also took part in a special invitation race in August that same year to mark his time in Scotland (run as a handicap race) over 120 yards at the famous Powderhall venue. Barney from the scratch mark lost narrowly to Albert C Charles (off 12.5yds). Barney Ewell died in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity. (en)

Mitte der 1930er Jahre, als Student der Pennsylvania State University, bis Anfang der 1940er Jahre war Ewell der stärkste Läufer und ein hervorragender Weitspringer der USA. Er gewann zwölf Goldmedaillen über 100 und 200 Meter bei nationalen Meisterschaften und elf Goldmedaillen bei nationalen AAU-Meisterschaften zwischen 1939 und 1948. Im Weitsprung erreichte er bereits 1942 eine Weite von 7,42 m. 1941 bis 1945 diente er beim Militär und nach seiner Rückkehr beendete er zuerst sein Studium. 1948 überraschte er die Öffentlichkeit damit, dass er an den kommenden Olympischen Spielen teilnehmen wollte. Bei den nationalen AAU-Meisterschaften, die gleichzeitig die Qualifikationsspiele für die Olympiamannschaft waren, stellte er den Weltrekord über 10,2 s über 100 Meter ein. Bei den XIV.

  • Harold Norwood "Barney" Ewell (ur. 25 lutego 1918 w Harrisburgu w Pensylwanii, zm. 4 kwietnia 1996 w Lancaster w Pensylwanii) – amerykański lekkoatleta sprinter, trzykrotny medalista olimpijski z 1948 z Londynu. Urodzony w ubogiej rodzinie w Harrisburgu, przez wiele lat był czołowym sprinterem w Stanach Zjednoczonych. Jego pierwszym osiągnięciem było mistrzostwo USA (AAU) juniorów w biegu na 100 metrów w 1936. Później zdobywał mistrzostwo Stanów Zjednoczonych (AAU) seniorów w biegu na 100 metrów w 1941, 1945 i 1948 oraz w biegu na 200 metrów w 1939, 1946 i 1947. Był także akademickim mistrzem USA (NCAA) na 100 jardów i na 220 jardów w 1940 i 1941 oraz akademickim mistrzem (IC4A) na 100 jardów, 220 jardów oraz w skoku w dal w 1940, 1941 i 1942. Studiował wówczas na Pennsylvania State University. Po odbyciu służby wojskowej w latach II wojny światowej powrócił na uniwersytet, który ukończył w 1947. na mistrzostwach AAU w 1948 wyrównał (w wieku 30 lat) rekord świata na 100 m wynikiem 10,2 s. Na igrzyskach olimpijskich w 1948 w Londynie wystąpił w trzech konkurencjach. Początkowo sądził, że wygrał finał biegu na 100 metrów, jednak analiza finiszu pokazała, że zajął 2. miejsce za swym rodakiem Harrisonem Dillardem. Podobnie w biegu na 200 metrów zdobył srebrny medal, tym razem przegrywając po zaciętej walce z innym Amerykaninem Melem Pattonem. W sztafecie 4 × 100 metrów pobiegł na 1. zmianie (po nim biegli Lorenzo Wright, Dillard i Patton). W finale sztafeta amerykańska wyraźnie wygrała, ale została zdyskwalifikowana za przekroczenie strefy zmian przy przekazywaniu pałeczki przez Ewella Wrightowi. Po analizie filmu z biegu okazało się, że zmiana był prawidłowa i sztafecie USA przywrócono złoty medal po 3 dniach od zakończenia konkurencji. Po igrzyskach Ewell utracił status amatora i występował przez kilka lat jako zawodowy lekkoatleta. (pl)
  • Harold Norwood "Barney" Ewell (Harrisburg, 25 de fevereiro de 1918 – Lancaster, 4 de abril de 1996) foi um velocista e campeão olímpico norte-americano. Nascido na pobreza numa pequena cidade do estado da Pensilvânia, tornou-se um dos melhores velocistas dos anos 40. Durante a década de 30, foi um dos melhores velocistas e saltadores juniores do estado, mas alcançou fama como corredor quando passou a cursar e competir pela Universidade Estadual da Pensilvânia nos 100 e 200 m rasos, colecionando doze medalhas de ouro entre 1940 e 1942 em campeonatos e torneios universitários. Entre 1939 e 1948 ganhou onze medalhas de ouro no campeonatos nacionais da Amateur Athletic Union (AAU); além das provas de velocidade, também era um ótimo saltador, atingindo a marca de 7,68 m em 1942. Depois de servir na II Guerra Mundial, ele retornou à universidade para concluir os estudos e em 1948 venceu o campeonato da AAU igualando o recorde mundial dos 100 m – 10s2 – o que o qualificou para os Jogos Olímpicos de Londres. Em Londres 1948 participou dos 100m e dos 200 m, conquistando a medalha de prata nas duas; na primeira perdeu no photo finish para o companheiro Harrison Dillard e na segunda para o também americano Mel Patton. Sua medalha de ouro veio no revezamento 4x100 m, do qual participou substituindo outro atleta, Ed Conwell, que adoeceu em Londres. Não veio entretanto sem um percalço: a troca de bastões entre Ewell e Lorenzo Wright, foi denunciada como sendo feita fora da zona de transição e a equipe norte-americana foi inicialmente desclassificada; só após uma reclamação oficial da delegação, que fez com que os diretores da prova revissem o filme da corrida, a vitória foi novamente confirmada e as medalhas de ouro entregues três dias depois.
