    “Zhabo”, besides being a member of the “long line” of successful Soviet/Russian Super-Heavyweights, but a multi-talented individual as well. The Zaporozhye, Ukraine native would later successfully defend his Ph.D in Pedagogy (Education) at the Kharkiv Institute in 1970. His other accomplishments included that of a weightlifting coach and military consultant in Madagascar, and as a Pro-rector at the Moscow Institute of Business & Law. The former member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) also retired from the Soviet Army as a Colonel in 1991. Another interesting factoid is his and his family’s survival of the Soviet-German War, where they survived the four Battles of Kharkov.
