Harold Connolly Statue

20 Warren Street

Olympic champion Harold Connolly is a truly historic figure in Boston annals. His left arm was damaged at birth and he spent his youth in physical therapy. He worked tirelessly on strength conditioning and emerged as a champion in the hammer throw, setting the American record twelve times, and the world record seven times. In 1956, Connolly won the gold medal in Melbourne, Australia.

Artist Pablo Eduardo's sculpture of Connolly was dedicated in December 2005 by state representative Kevin Honan and attended by Connolly and his family and friends. Connolly continues to coach young athletes.
