The two-handed lift was won easily by the Greek [Perikles Kakousis], who was 27.33 kg (60 lbs) ahead of [Oscar Osthoff]. Kakousis also competed at the 1906 Intercalated Olympics, placing sixth in this event, and was also entered in the discus throw. In St. Louis he was also part of a tug-of-war team. Osthoff won the all-around dumbbell contest in 1904. Third-place went to [Frank Kugler], which older sources often spelled Kungler. He was still a German citizen, not becoming a US citizen until 1913, but represented the St. Louis Southwest Turnverein in 1904. Kugler won bronze in both weightlifting events, adding another bronze in tug-of-war, and a silver in heavyweight wrestling, making him the only athlete to have ever won medals in three different sports at one Olympic Games.
