John Grimek

Here's a sketch of a drawing I'm preparing.  It will show the great lifter and bodybuilder John Grimek halfway through a one-handed clean and jerk.

Grimek was the only man to win the Mr. America title twice (they changed the rules after his second win, thinking he just might win it forever!), and he represented the United States as a weightlifter in the 1936 Olympic Games, held in Berlin.  He was born in 1910 and died in 1998, a great athlete and a great man: He had an easy laugh, and he danced with his wife.
