Steve Gob poses with a 17-year old John Davis on the sidewalks of Cleveland, Ohio, circa 1938. Gob and Davis lifted in the same class but their first attempts at Olympic gold were dashed when the 1940 Helsinki, Finland games were cancelled. Davis went on to win many weightlifting titles and Gob went on to be a professional wrestler in Canada.
