Video: The Most Decorated Jewish Olympian Woman – Agnes Keleti (kvellercom)
After surviving the Holocaust, Agnes Keleti represented Hungary in the 1952 and 1956 Olympic Games where she won 10 medals, 5 of them gold.
Her gymnastics training came to an abrupt halt once Germany invaded Hungary in 1944. She survived under a false identity.
Her mother and sister were saved by Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg. Her father and the rest of her family died in Auschwitz.
At age 95, Agnes lives in Israel and can still do cartwheels and splits.
