In his first competition, he placed last in the run but second overall. Continued success in these events led him to compete in the modern pentathlon in the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, where he won a silver medal, and the 1960 Rome Olympics, where he won a bronze in team competition.
In the years between Olympics, Daniels studied exercise science at the Royal Gymnastics Central Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, under Per Olof Astrand, one of the world’s best sports scientists. Daniels went on to earn a doctoral degree in exercise physiology at the University of Wisconsin.
