MAN OF SPIRIT

Karoly Takacs was a member of the Hungarian world champion pistol shooting team and did not attend the 1936 Olympics because he was a sergeant but not an officer. Later this senseless bound was canceled. Although he lost his shooting arm after a grenade explosion near him during training. Takacs taught himself to shoot with his left hand and, he won an Olympic gold medal in the rapid-fire pistol event in 1948 and 1952.
