Karoly Takacs | Olympic Gold Medalist by only Left hand

Karoly Takacs, the First Shooter, who won two Olympic Gold Medals by his only Left hand, But he was Right-Handed that was injured in an Army training Camp.



Karoly Takacs, but in Hungarian name order, He is called as Takács Károly, He was the first shooter to win two Olympic gold medals in the 25-meter rapid fire pistol event, both with his left hand after his right hand had been seriously injured. He is the athlete which is known as the third physically disabled athlete which has competed in the Olympic Games after some well-known athlete as George Eyser in 1904 and Oliver Halassy in 1928, that all of them are followed by Liz Hartel in 1952, Neroli Fairhall in 1984 and Oscar Pistorius in 2012.

Karoly was born in Budapest and joined the Hungarian Army. And then by 1936, he became a world-class pistol shooter in Hungarian, He won every national championship in his country and all of the people almost confirm that he will be won the gold medal in the Olympics of 1940, that was going to happen. When we look at the efforts of Karoly, there was a training of years. He has only one dream, one and only focus to make his hand (right-hand), the best shooting hand in the world, and finally, he almost achieved the target that he got the best hand of one in the world, then he was denied and prohibited a place in the Hungarian shooting team for the 1936 Summer Olympics on the grounds because of that he was a sergeant, and he was allowed to compete only for commissioned officers. This prohibition was lifted in Hungary after the Berlin Games, and But Karoly Takacs had robust expectations of being successful, at the 1940 Summer Olympics, that was scheduled to be held in Tokyo. 

Unfortunately when only two years was remaining for becoming his dream come true. There was an army training camp in 1938, his right hand was badly injured when a faulty hand grenade had been exploded during training. While his dream, his focus all buzzed, then he had two choices, whether he was crying all his life, and hide from the social blade or never under-estimate himself and hold the goal of life that was his dream, then he finally decided the forget about what he lost except that he focuses on what he had (his only left-hand), As such hand, by which he can't even write anything. After one month of hospitalization due to curation of right-hand injury then after relieving from hospitalization, he starts training of his left-hand. He came again After one year of left-hand training. In 1939, there was happening a national championship, where he came, all of the athletes encourage him that he is a remarkable man of inspiration and passionate about shooting careers because the other athletes thought that Karoly only came to see us and for enhearten us. He answered that I'm not come to encourage you but compete with all of you. 

Dear Readers, just imagine all of the others are shooting with their best hand but there was Karoly, who compete by his only left-hand and you know what, he won, Yes, He won the championship and all the other athletes are shocked by the way. Now his focus again was cleared that he would make, his left-hand, the best shooting hand of the world. Even though, after such hardcore incident, Karoly Takacs was decided to remain in his shooting career and then exception of injured right-hand, in which he had a unique power to win and bet any challenge on the spot but Karoly had to switch his command for shooting from right-hand to his only left-hand. We say his left-hand as his only hand because everyone in this world has got born only with one hand perfection whether it is right or left. You know it's a rule of nature, there is always no one who has control enough of both hands. Whether Someone is right-handed or the other one is left-handed. But the man of exception, world's inspirational character Karoly Takacs was practiced secretly, surprised everyone with his countrymen when he won the Hungarian national pistol shooting championship in the spring of 1939.

So, Karoly also became a member of the Hungarian team that won the 1939, UIT World Shooting Championships in the event. And When The Olympic Games scheduled for 1940 and 1944 were canceled due to the Second World War, Then after that, he never ever stopped, Everyone had sympathy with him due to his effort and his humbleness, where the general public only said that Karoly might be had the courage yet by the aged of 38 to compete with young shooters but unfortunately, he lost right-hand and this is the reason he had to face so much criticism in the shooting career-forum because everybody thinks of him, sympathetic and comment him like being nothing in working side of shooting career.

But do you know? what happened in the history of Shooting career and Olympics History? Karoly Takacs even make surprised the world by winning the gold medal at the 1948 Summer Olympics in London, at the age of 38 years old, and finally was beating the favorite, Argentine Carlos Enrique Díaz Sáenz Valiente, who was the reigning world champions, who had approached him before the event and had asked him what was he doing there (having heard about his accident). His reply was also an inspiration that he was there to learn, setting a world record. Ultimately, Valiente later congratulated saying you have learned enough


So, there is a lesson in the Life Of Karoly Takacs as below:

Never Give up Anyway
Chase your Dreams...However, what is wrong with you
And No matter at all, What You Loss But think about What you have & What your Life gives you
