Biography

As a youth, Jaan Kikkas competed as a cyclist, not taking up weightlifting until 1921, when he was nearly 30 years-old. He made his international début at the 1922 World Championships, where he was fourth as a middleweight. In 1923 Kikkas won silver at the Baltic Championships and followed this up with the highlight of his career at the 1924 Olympic Games, where he won a bronze medal.
