George George

Like his brothers, George George worked his way up the weightlifting ladder from Northeastern Ohio to state to junior national to national level. As a Kent State sophomore, after being graduated from Akron East High, George won the national intercollegiate 148-pound championship in 1947. Thus encouraged, he made a bid for membership on the U.S. Olympic weightlifting team. George was eliminated in the finals and had to settle for second place.
