Frank & Chip: The Olympic Experience
Frank and Chip Haubold were the first married couple to compete in the Olympics together. The year was 1936 and they were both gymnasts from New Jersey representing the United States. They marched in front of Hitler and were held in low regard because of Frank’s German ancestry (much as was Jesse Owens). Their story is one of love, overcoming the depression, and working tirelessly not only to excel as gymnasts but also to be able to afford the traveling and uniform expenses that were a part of being on the team as there were no corporate sponsors to help them.
