The Lift Up and our sub-publications continue the Go USA Weightlifting Marathon superseries of historical articles to cheer up the Team USA and all the fans of the Iron Game who certainly will be following one of the key Olympic weightlifting events of the year.

The black-and-white original of this photo came from the archives of legendary U.S. weightlifter Stanley Stanczyk (left to right):

Back row: John Davis, Bob Hoffman, N/A, Stanley Stanczyk, Dietrich Wortmann, N/A, Joe Pitman;

Front row: Peter George, N/A, Joe Di Pietro, Harold Sakata.

Based on the personalities in the group, it was made in the late 1940s – around the time of the first post World War II Summer Olympics on London (1948). My guess is that it was taken right after Team USA returned from overseas in 1948.
