John Lewis was active at the 1920 Olympic Tournament. He took charge of the gold medal match between Belgium and Czechoslovakia.

but
The Czechoslovaks thought John Lewis too biased and after Belgium had scored their second goal and Karel Steiner was sent off in the 39th minute, the Czechoslovaks walked off and refused to come back.
Because the silver medal winners were gone there was a consolidation round, won by Spain. The French team, eligible to join, had already left.
