Herbert Heinrich

Herbert Heinrich (29 July 1899 in Leipzig – 2 March 1975 in Düsseldorf) was a German swimmer who competed in the 1928 Summer Olympics.[1] Heinrich was considered the preeminent short distance German swimmer of the early 1920s, but because German athletes had been excluded from the Olympic Games in 1920 and 1924, prior to 1928, Heinrich was only able to compete internationally at the European Swimming Championships, first held in 1926 in Budapest.
