Gyozo Veres: Early Years


The History in Color presents a color version of the photo of young Hungarian athlete Gyozo Veres practicing a clean-and-jerk lift outdoors.

As we all know, Veres became one of the best weightlifters in the world.

Gyozo Veres (1936-2011) was the first Hungarian Olympic weightlifter to win the World Championship (1962) and to earn the medal at the modern Olympic games (1960).
