Best Super Heavyweights (USA)

The History in Color series presents a group shot of the best super heavyweights of Team USA in the 1950s. Actually, those were the best supers not only of the USA but the whole world of Olympic weightlifting at the time.

Left to Right:

John Davis of NYC, New York, Jim Bradford of Washington D.C., Norbert Schemansky of Detroit, Michigan, Paul Anderson of Toccoa, Georgia.

How many Olympic medals in total were earned by these legendary athletes?
