History of Olympic Weightlifting
The Lift Up project is brought to you by chidlovski.com.
World Championship, Budapest, Hungary 1962: Bill March (USA) was one of the US leading athletes in the middle heavyweight of the 1960s. The footage was donated to the Lift Up project by Mr. Frank Rothwell (Ireland). It features Bill March performing lifts on his way to the bronze medal at the 1962 World Championship. By many accounts, Bill March was considered one of the most powerful and impressive pressers of his time in the world.
