Agnes Keleti gymnast, the oldest living Olympic champion, turns 99

Agnes Keleti gymnast, the oldest living Olympic champion, turns 99.

Agnes Keleti won 10 Olympic medals as a gymnast at the 1952 Helsinki Games and the 1956 Melbourne Games and is also a Holocaust survivor.

She was aged 31 and 35 during her two Olympics and won five gold medals.

She trails only American swimmers Mark Spitz and Dara Torres among Jewish athletes in having the most Olympic medals.

Keleti lived for decades in Israel teaching gymnastics before returning a few years ago to Budapest, Hungary.

She said the most important thing children should learn is “the joy of life”.
