No. He was in fourth place in the 400m in the 1960 Rome Olympics, losing the bronze medal by fraction of a second.

He did win 5 other gold medals : one in the British and Commonwealth Games at Cardiff (1958), two at the Asian Games in Tokyo (1958) and two at Jakarta (1962).

no he didn't.....but he was 4th at 1960 olympics in rome due to some error made by him in the last 250m of the race.He was in such a good form that he was most expected of all to win the race but slowing down in the few seconds caused him a painful memory which he still regrets.....however he has been the gold medalist in 1958 Commonwealth Games - 400 m,1958 Asian Games - 200 m and 400 m & in asian games 1962-400m.
