Hungarian Olympic gold medal-winner Szilveszter Csollany died on Tuesday after being hospitalized with the coronavirus. He was 51.

Csollany won the silver at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and went on to win the gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games on the rings.

He had been battling the virus since December.
