Biography

Weightlifter Helmut Opschruf set three middleweight clean & jerk world records in 1935-36. Despite this, the German Weightlifting Federation nominated [Rudolf Ismayr] and [Adolf Wagner] for this class at the Berlin Olympics and Opschruf was selected for the light-heavyweight division finishing fourth. Silver medal winner [Eugen Deutsch] was initially disqualified for missing all three snatches, but on appeal, the jury reinstated one of his snatches which moved him into second place, to the consternation of the non-German competitors and also Opschruf, who missed out on a bronze medal.
