Good job, rich1948, it is John Flanagan, however his middle name was Joseph. It has been reported as Jesus, but Joseph it was. Yes, his birth date has been recorded as 1868, but I went with the 1873 date I have seen many more times.
Flanagan won the Olympic hammer throw three times: 1900, 1904, and 1908. He was an amazing athlete. I think he could have been a pretty good decathlete. Born in Ireland, Flanagan came to the U.S., competed for the U.S., and then returned to Ireland where he died in 1938.
