Medals: 1 Gold, 1 Silver (2 Total)
Polish sculptor Józef Klukowski won a gold medal for his Sport Sculpture II at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics in the category of medals and reliefs within the art competitions, and also won a silver medal in 1936 for his relief Football Match. The 42 cm high Egyptian Relief Sport Sculpture II showed an awards ceremony on the front, and on the left and the right, as well as on the back reliefs of a discus thrower, a shot putter and a football player. It was presented to ski jumper Stanisław Marusarz in 1932 for winning a jumping competition. Marusarz’s father saved the trophy through World War II, and it was re-discovered in 2000-01 at an exhibition in the Museum of Sport and Tourism in Warszawa, as Marusarz' trophies were presented.
Klukowski was a sculptor, painter and graphic artist and studied in Warszawa and Paris. His main interests were sports and animal motifs. He took part in the Warszawa Uprising in 1944 and was killed on a transport from the Sachsenhausen concentration camp while being moved to Bergen-Belsen.
