Agnes Keleti, now retired Hungarian-Israeli Olympic and world champion gymnast. While representing Hungary, she won five gold, three silver and two bronze medals in the Summer Olympics and was given the title of the most successful Jewish Olympic athlete of all time. Agnes was considered a top prospect for the Hungarian Olympic team in 1940, but with the escalation of World War II, the game was canceled. In 1941, she was expelled from her gymnastics club for being Jewish and from there her life would take a turn. While in hiding, Keleti would purchase identification papers of a Christian girl working as a maid in a village to survive throughout the war. Both her mother and sister were saved by Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, whereas her father and other relatives would sadly be killed by gassing in Auschwitz. After the war Agnes would continue training and win her first Hungarian championship in 1946. Just a year later she would win another gymnastics title that would qualify her for the 1948 Summer Olympics, but was unable to compete. 1952 Olympic games, Keleti would compete for the first time and win four medals. At the age of 35 she became the oldest female gymnast to win gold, and once again Agnes would suffer hardships after the Soviet Union invaded Hungary during the 1956 Olympics. She and 44 other Hungarian athletes would remain in Australia and receive political asylum. After emigrating to Israel in 1957, she would retire from competitions and work as a physical education instructor in the Tel Aviv University. As of 2005, she lives in Herzliya Pituah, and is the oldest Hungarian Olympic champion, now at age 97.
