If you’re an athlete, it pays to engage in an “all around” training program, no matter what sport you might play. Hans Luber, shown here having a go at a “German Crusher” device, looks like he might be a weightlifter, but he was actually a diver, and a very good one at that. Luber took the Silver medal in the 3-meter spring board event at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics and followed it up later with two Gold Medals at the World Championships in 1926 and 1927 in the 3-meter spring board event and platform diving. Look closely at the background and you’ll also see a row of Indian Clubs in this fine gym.
