History of Olympic Weightlifting
The Lift Up project is brought to you by chidlovski.com.
Here is a great ho video from 1964 Olympics featuring top three finishers in each weight catagory. Please watch Novak 3rd place finisher in 60kg at about 3:45. You will get a kick out of that ;)
This is not Vasil Vanev, but Zlatan
Special thanks to Mr. Pete Kravtsov for all the priceless info and details on legendary athletes that he submitted to Lift Up!!!!
Поздравляю Норберта! Его многие знают в России и помнят его замечательные спортивные достижения! Желаю крепкого здоровья, долгих и интересных лет жизни!
Norbert Schemansky is turning 91 on May 30th. It's short notice but I would love to have birthday greetings sent to him.
I guess you could email me & I'll print them out for him. Or I could send you my home address.
I'm very proud of this man.
Unfortunately I have no information about A. Kazaryan's first name. There's a film about 1987 USSR Championships (about tactics), I just watched it and found out G. Kazaryan's first name.
Other facts from the film say that there's a mistake here: http://www.chidlovski.net/liftup/l_tournamentResult.asp?tflag=su&wname=Super%20Heavyweight&wyear=1987
Leonid Taranenko won with 472.5 = 207.5 + 265.5, unofficial world record in the c&j, which he made official later that year in Ostrava.
Thanks, Denis! The name has been updated. Do you happen to know the first name of A. Kazaryan @
This athlete's name is Garnik
Yes, I saw this note about the last update, and it's definitely what I'm speaking about: the lists surely need new updates!
The ALL-TIME TOP LISTS (200-250-450) have been posted in 2004 and last updated in 2009. It is noted in the article. Thanks.
