Comment: Kapros, son of Pythagoras, won both the wrestling and pankration at the same Olympiad (142nd = 212 BC); he was the first to do so (only second to Herakles: deuteros ap' Herakles). In wrestling, he defeated Paianios (ID 1092 in this database) and he defeated Kleitomachos (ID 527 in this database) in pankration. [DvdL]
