V pisanem življenju telovadca Staneta Derganca je odločilno vlogo odigralo SP 1922 v Ljubljani, kjer je Ljubljančan zablestel z 2. mestom v mnogoboju. Tudi Derganc je bil športni otrok Sokola, s 5. mestom na preskoku in 6. na konju pa je prispeval pomemben delež k imenitnemu uspehu jugoslovanske vrste na olimpijski premieri leta 1924 v Parizu. Na SP 1926 v Lyonu je bil član »srebrne« jugoslovanske ekipe, športno pot na velikih tekmovanjih pa je končal z bronastima lovorikama na preskoku in z ekipo na OI 1928 v Amsterdamu. Tudi po prisilno končani karieri zaradi poškodbe hrbtenice leta 1930 je ostal zvest športni gimnastiki kot trener. Upodobili so ga na prvi jugoslovanski znamki leta 1918, odrekel pa se je vabilu iz Hollywooda, da bi zaigral v filmu o Tarzanu.

The highlight of Stane Derganc’s colourful gymnastics career came in his home town of Ljubljana at the 1922 World Championships, where he won silver in the all-around event. A product of the Sokol club, Derganc played a key role in Yugoslavia’s impressive Olympic debut in Paris in 1924 with 5th place in the vault and 6th in the pommel horse. He was a member of the Yugoslav team which won silver at the 1926 World Championships in Lyon. He won bronze medals in the vault and the team event at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, but was forced to reiter by a back injury in 1930. Remaining committed to the sport despite the injury, he became a coach. Derganc was featured on the first Yugoslav stamp in 1918 and turned down an offer from Hollywood to act in Tarzan.
