Gosling’s Olympic Gold: Paris 1900

Yes, “my” family has OLYMPIC Gold in its past.

As a member of the Upton Park Football Club, William Sullivan Gosling (1869-1952) competed at the Paris Games in 1900 – and walked away with a Gold Medal!

Upton Park beat the French team 4-0. Alas, only two matches were played: Between France and Belgium; Britain and France. How times have changed…
