Frank Marshall, gentleman, sportsman. wiki: "In the 1930s Marshall captained the U.S. team to four gold medals at four Chess Olympiads. During one round, he returned to the board and found that his comrades had agreed to three draws. After he finished his own game, he gave each of them a stern talk individually on how draws do not win games or matches. In 1936 after holding the U.S. championship title for 27 years, he relinquished it to the winner of a championship tournament."
