Hans Luber

Posted on Friday, September 26th, 2014 by John Wood

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.
