Read the stories of three Olympic champions and learn how the fight for gold brings success! 



George Eyser. Everyone can have gold regardless of their physical abilities. 

George Eyser is the American sportsman of the beginning of the 20th Century with physical disabilities, who practiced several disciplines. In spite of having a wooden leg prosthesis, this man managed to win 6 medals in the Olympic Games of 1904 in St.Louis! The outstanding athlete received three golden medals (in parallel bars, vault and rope climbing), two silver medals (in vaulting horse) and one bronze medal (in horizontal bar). The Eyser's example proves that the most important thing to achieve results is the will to win! 

Zhang Shan, the woman in chase of gold.


Zhang Shan is the Chinese sportswoman who won the first prize in trap shooting in the Olympics of 1968. What is so special about this victory? Over 2000 women participated in this discipline along with men and until then, no woman had managed to win before her; she was the exception with a gold medal in Barcelona 1992. 

Murray Halberg. It is not a problem to switch disciplines! 


It may happen that circumstances make it impossible to do what one had done before. However, the examples from people's lives show that circumstances are not obstacles in achieving success. Murray Halberg, an athlete from New Zealand, used to play rugby until his left arm was seriously traumatized and later paralyzed. But Halberg did not despair and started running instead. He progressed to such extent to receive the golden medal for 5 km running in the Olympic Games of 1960. 

Sometimes the price of gaining gold is high, and sometimes it is quite affordable. The Global InterGold Online Gold Shop provides its clients with the investment gold bars of the highest quality for them to have a stable net worth.
