My first knowledge of Rakhmanov was a photo in Strength and Health giving a brief report on the 1977 Friendship cup. He and Yenaldiev were both there. I think Yenaldiev was the winner with Rakhmanov as an extra lifter. Sultan was still growing into the supers, maybe 280lbs. but he had enormous traps and very thick arms, especially forearms. I kept looking for him in results after that.
