  • WORLD'S OLDEST OLYMPIC CHAMPION AGNES KELETI CELEBRATES HER 100TH BIRTHDAY AND THE HUNGARIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE CELEBRATED THE 125TH ANNIVERSARY OF ITS FOUNDATION


    01/09/21

    Five-time Olympic Champion gymnast Ágnes Keleti has turned 100. The oldest living Olympic Champion is also the most successful representative of Hungarian gymnastics: the gymnast, coach, university professor, international sports judge and Hungarian Olympic Committee Honorary Member won 10 Olympic medals besides her World Championships triumph. IOC President Thomas Bach greeted the Hungarian sports legend on the phone, while HOC President Krisztián Kulcsár and Secretary General Bálint Vékássy personally conveyed their best wishes to Ágnes Keleti.

    To commemorate these precious events, the Hungarian Olympic Committee created two videos. We would be honoured if you watched it.
