Austrian sculptor Edmund Reitter was born in Bratislava, nowadays Slovakia, and was trained as a gymnast prior to and during his studies of architecture and sculpture. He won a national gymnastics competition in Bratislava in 1931. Reiter first studied architecture at the Technical University of Bratislava and then learned sculpture at the Academy of Arts in Wien (Vienna) and München. His sculptures, which often centered on sports figures, were exhibited in galleries all across Europe.
