Biography

Eugen MACK

Eugen Mack, who was born at Lake Constance, is considered as one of the best Swiss gymnasts ever. He won eight Olympic medals in his two Olympic appearances, including two golds in 1928 vault and team. This is the most Olympic medals by any Swiss, equalled only by his teammate Georges Miez. Apart from Mack's Olympic success he also competed in two World Championships. In 1934 in Budapest he won the all-around, which then consisted of 15 events, and also won gold with the team, on pommelled horse, parallel bars, and the horse vault as well as silver in floor and rings. Four years later in Prague 1938 he defended his title on horse vault, won silver with the team and on floor, and bronze in all-around bringing his medal collection at the World Championships up to 11 (6-4-1). After his active career Mack established gymnastics for the disabled in Basel where he also died at the age of 71 in 1978. In 1999 he was posthumously inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame.
