I can't believe he is turning 60 today. Where have the years gone. Happy Birthday, Yuri! I hope you are living a happy life as well as a healthy one!

I see that Zac competed in Varna in 1984 doing some WR's. When did he hurt his elbow? I thought it was in '83 sometime after the Friendship cup. I didn't realize he was back lifting in '84. I think the 'Varna Olympics' didn't get much press so that may be why I don't remember the results.

Best 110+ lifter all time. A masterful beast on the barbell. Looked like his elbows were gonna blow. He didn't give a damn. He was a warrior and just kept setting World Records.

Eh...Mike...300kg jerk off the racks? Sorry, man, don't think so. Yuri is nothing short of a miracle, but even Pisarenko wouldn't have jerked that

the senior 90kg snatch record went from about 180.5 to 187.5 during 1981, so yuri records were the senior wrs listed above

One of the few guys who could have moved up to the supers and given Kurlovich & Taranenko a run for the money! Awesome strength, Nicu Vlad told us he saw Yuri jerk 300kg from off of the rack in training once, legendary athlete!

Impressive athlete! Someone knows his height?? However his records in the MiddleHeavyweight class in 1981, at 18 years, are junior records because at that time the record by Blagoev Blagoy was over 190kg.

The greates heavyweight of all time 210 kg snatch and 250.5 kg clean and jerk, he has also cleaned 265 kg at 110 kg body weight, just unbelivable!
