Biography

Bram Charité is the last Dutch weightlifter (thru 2004) to win an Olympic medal. At the 1948 Olympics, he broke his own national records in all three phases, and earned a bronze medal. As this competition doubled as the European Championships, and he only had two Americans in front of him, he also received a gold medal. Charité, who ate three steaks a day to keep strong, was unsuccessful in his second Olympic appearance, and had two withdraw after two attempts in the press because of back pains.
