Il 9 gennaio Agnes Keleti ha celebrato il suo centesimo compleanno. Nata a Budapest il 9 gennaio 1921, di origini ebraiche, sopravvissuta all’Olocausto, è ricordata oggi come la più anziana campionessa olimpica vivente oltre che come la ginnasta ungherese di maggior successo. La sua è una storia travagliata ma ricca di soddisfazioni che le ha fatto vincere le medaglie olimpiche per la sua patria natale, l’Ungheria, e ha visto nascere i suoi due figli nella sua terra di elezioni, Israele.
