We are talking about “The Greatest Shooter of all time & The Man With The Only Hand” i.e. Károly Takács! Károly was in army & was also a world-class pistol shooter. He wanted to win Olympic medal in shooting & was working hard with expectation to win in 1940 Olympics. In 1938 (while preparing for Olympics), in army explosion, his right hand was seriously injured & he became unable to shoot for his lifetime! People thought his career was over. But it was not for him. Károly started training his left hand & surprised people winning the “Hungarian National Pistol Shooting Championship” in 1939 & Gold Medal in 1948 & 1952 Olympics & became first shooter to win 2 such Gold Medals with his left hand (1940 & 1944 Olympic were cancelled due to World War II). He taught a lesson to world: Focus on what you have, not on what you lost. He was a real Olympic Hero & a True Champion.
