One of the last, if not the last, survivors from pre WWII Olympics. Also one of the youngest medalists ever.

@Dragon?

 

Apparently not the last, John Lysak is still alive for example.

Too bad this awesome page is all messed up now for some reason:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Canadian_Paul/Olympics

 

At least the first athlete on the list is still listed as alive and competed in 1936.

Here's my source:

 

https://acsweb.ucsd.edu/~ptchir/

 

:USAJohn Lysak is the oldest living Olympic Games participant. He will turn 106 years old in August.

 

:SWE Folke Alnevik is the oldest living Summer Oympic medallist (bronze in 4x400 relay 1948). He turned 100 years old on New Year's Eve.

 

:HUN Agnes Keleti is the oldest living Olympic champion. She is actually older than Elda Cividino but only made her Olympic debut in 1952, some 16 years after Cividino.

 

:ITA Celina Seghi is the oldest living Winter Games participant (4th in downhill & combined in St. Moritz 1948). She turned 100 years old in March.

 

:SWE Carl-Erik Asplund is the oldest living Winter Olympic Games medallist (bronze in 10,000 speed skating 1952).

 

:URS Viktor Shuvalov is the oldest living Winter Olympic champion (Ice Hockey center, 5 goals/2 assists in the 1956 Games).

 

Apparently all the medallists from St. Moritz 1948 are no longer alive. The last Oslo 1952 champion passed away in April of last year ( :FIN  Lydia Wideman, gold in 10km cross country).

She turns 100 in January and as far as I know from someone who is quite close, it's gonna be quite an event in Hungary.
