The Lift Up project is brought to you by chidlovski.com.
Leonid Taranenko wins the Spartakiad gold medal in the 110 kg class against such world caliber athletes as V. Klokov, Chimrov, Kuzmin, Arakelov, Kravchuk and more. Truly a nostalgic piece for those who followed closely the Olympic weightlifting in the 1980s.
