My weightlifting history
I wasn’t born with a grey beard as many of you think. Back in the 80s I used to shave pretty often. Can you find me in these pictures? I used to be a weightlifting coach if you didn’t know. Later I switched to powerlifting because of my very talented student, Alexey Sivokon. It was clear to me that he had more potential in powerlifting. Thank God I was right!
