Jüri Lossmann was the first Estonian who won an Olympic medal for the Republic of Estonia and he won it in marathon, back in 1920 in Antwerp. With the time of 2:32.48 he got the silver medal; the gold medal was only 12,8 seconds away. Jüri's marathon result stayed as the Estonian record for 38 years and until today, his medal remains Estonia's only Olympic medal in the running distances. 

Year 2020, marks 100 years since the first Republic of Estonia's Olympic medal and 4th February is Jüri Lossmann's birthday.
