    John B. Kelly Sr: a historic achievement in Antwerp, and a legendary dynasty

    John Brendan (known as “Jack”) Kelly Sr achieved a unique feat on the Willebroeck Canal in Brussels in 1920 during the Games of the VII Olympiad: In half an hour, he took first place in the single sculls, and then first place again in the double sculls with his cousin, Paul Costello.

Kelly Jr, also an Olympic medallist in rowing, and Grace Kelly, the famous American actress who became Princess of Monaco.
