Biography

Carlo Galimberti grew up as the son of Italian immigrants in Rosario de Santa Fe, Argentina. In his youth, he tried various sports, especially football, but then focused on weightlifting. After World War I, the family returned to Italy. In 1928, he was the Italian flag-bearer at the Opening Ceremony and he won three Olympic medals – gold in 1924 and silvers in 1928 and 1932. Galimberti set five middleweight world records from 1924-28 – one in the press, one in the clean & jerk, and three in the total. He was runner-up at the 1930 and 1931 European Championships. From 1921-39 he also won 18 consecutive national titles, 13 as a middleweight and 5 as a light-heavy. Galimberti was a professional firefighter and died in 1939 following burns he suffered during the explosion of a boiler.
