Thomas Hamilton-Brown

In the 1936 Olympic games, boxer Thomas Hamilton-Brown was eliminated in the first round of the lightweight class after losing his fight to Carlos Lillo. An error was soon discovered and it turned out he had won it but due to a scoring miscalculation he did not find this out until several days later, when he had gone on an eating binge and was too heavy for his weight class.
