Peter T. George, Aloha ... Samson had nothing on you

I'm talking about strength of mind and body, which is the necessary ingredient to be a successful man which leads to the name ... Peter T. George, D.D.S., who now lives in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is a regular TRIBUNE subscriber.
...
The late Chris [Alusheff], related some interesting facts about Peter T. George. At the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, the Bulgarians were the undisputed champions of weightlifting. Many were not aware that the most successful brothers in the history of weightlifting are the brothers George, Jim and Peter T. George.
They were born in Akron to the late Paraskeva and Tryan Taleff. Jim and Peter scored more points in worldwide competition than any other brother combination. Together they won 16 medals in the World Championships and Olympic Games. During the years they competed, only four nations accumulated more medals than the two brothers.
George, the other brother, was a national collegiate champion, but unfortunately he and Peter were about the same body weight and had to compete against each other. George would have made the Olympic Team in 1948 if Peter hadn't lifted. To avoid lifting against his brother, George reduced to the lightweight bodyweight class.
This loss of bodyweight combined with the exertion necessary to compete caused dizziness resulting in a loss, which eliminated him from making the team. The following year at the national championships, George stayed in the middleweight class. Peter won first, the man who won the Olympic championship was second and George was third.
What did they do after the competition? Peter is an orthodontist in Honolulu. He's also an assistant professor at the Medical School of the University of Hawaii. George became a successful building contractor and Jim is a prominent dentist in Akron.
All of this action encompassed the years 1948 to 1988 ... 40 years. Here's the story on my "Aloha" guy Peter T. George. While in elementary school his classmates considered him weak and awkward, and his teachers considered him a slow learner.
...
Peter believed him, applied himself with confidence and the results were golden. After Akron East High School, he went to Kent State University, and got his B.S. degree. Then on to Ohio State University, where he obtained his Doctor of Dentistry Degree. From Ohio State he went to Columbia University for a post Doctoral Certificate in Orthodontics. Now follows four areas of Peter T. George.
...
Dr. George practiced as an Orthodontist and specialized in sleep breathing disorders. He invented the first oral appliance to prevent severe obstructive sleep apnea and common snoring. He holds several national and international patents. His writings have appeared in leading international dental and medical journals, and he has lectured internationally. He received the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine's first and only Lifetime Achievement Award.

I want Peter T. George, on my team ... wouldn't you? He's a talkative, affable, good looking man of Aloha.
