Wrestler Kurt Leucht won the Greco-Roman bantamweight gold medal at the 1928 Amsterdam Games and in 1931 was the silver medalist in the Greco-Roman European Championships. He won both individual and team titles at the 1926 German National Championships. Leucht retired from the sport in 1932 after losing in the Olympic qualifiers to [Jakob Brendel], who would go on and win the Olympic title. After his retirement, Leucht went on to become an international referee.
In 1928 his hometown Nuremberg planned a great welcome on his return as Olympic champion. But due to a knee injury he returned a day earlier. When he read in the newspaper about his planned welcome, he travelled back to FÃ¼rth in a taxi in his Olympic clothes and from there he took the train to Nuremberg to enjoy the welcome ceremony.
