This week’s Global Podium for the best sportspeople in the world features Áron Szilágyi, Shōhei Ōno, Kim Je-deok and An San.

Gold: Áron Szilágyi
(Hungary, Fencing)

Áron became the first fencer in Olympic history to win three Olympic gold medals in an individual fencing event. He won the Men’s Sabre Individual competition three times in a row, in London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020. This is extremely difficult considering how unpredictable individual fencing is, and it is especially difficult considering these Games were held five years after the previous ones.

(Japan, Judo)

Shohei Ono won the Olympic gold in the Men’s -73 kg division for the second time in a row. He is now unbeaten internationally since 2015. This second gold adds to his six World Championships (three in individually), which arguably makes him the greatest of all time in his division. He beat Lasha Shavdatuashvili (GEO) in a great golden score match that lasted over 5 minutes.
