Team USA In York, PA (1952)

Team USA 1952

This enhanced team photo portrays the U.S. Olympic weightlifters in York, PA before they went to represent the country at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki (left to right):

John Davis (90kg+, gold medal), Norbert Schemansky (90kg, gold medal), Peter George (75kg, gold medal), Stanley Stanczyk (82.5kg, silver medal), Clyde Emrich (82.5kg, 8th place), Tommy Kono (67.5kg, gold medal)

Those were the glory days of U.S. lifting in the world.

Each athlete on the photo definitely deserves his own page of pride and honor in the history book of U.S. and international Olympic weightlifting.
