Miracle of Nature in Moscow

vorobyev-anderson-lomakin-1955


History in Color

Paul Anderson of Team USA, also known as “Miracle of Nature” for his phenomenal strength, is being admired by two Soviet champs, Arkady Vorobyev (left) and Trofim Lomakin.


The original photo was made during the historical USA vs. USSR Olympic weightlifting matches in the Summer of 1955.


It was the first ever visit of the American sports teams to Russia during the Cold War time. It was a common routine back then that the foreign nationals were followed and observed by the Soviet secret police. In 1955, for a different reason, thousands of Russian spectators were following Paul Anderson in Moscow to get a glimpse of the Miracle of Nature, the strongest men they’ve ever seen!

History in Color:

Outstanding Polish light heavyweight Norbert Ozimek competes at the 1969 World Championships in Warsaw, Poland.


Norbert Ozimek (b. 1945) was one of the lead athletes of Team Poland with such star Olympic weightlifters as Waldemar Baszanowski, Marian Zielinski, Ireneusz Palinski and more that made Polish team one of the best in the world back in the 1960s – early 1970s.


Ozimek competed for his country at two Summer Olympics – in Mexico City (1968, bronze medal, 82.5kg) and in Munich (1972, silver medal, 82.5kg). He won the World title in 1965 and won numerous medals at the World and European championships. In 1967, when the Worlds were cancelled, Ozimek won the first place at the Little Olympics in Mexico.


He set the world record in snatch (148kg) in Tehran in 1965.


Needless to note that during his long career in weightlifting, Norbert Ozimek always competed in the same weight class – in the 82.5kg category.


He ia a 5-time champion of his native Poland. After retiring from competitive weightlifting, Ozimek worked as a coach and held the position of the Team Poland head coach.

Alexander Kurlovich (1961-2018)

alexander-kurlovich-rip


Legend of Olympic weightlifting, one of the best super heavyweights of all times, Alexander Kurlovich of Grodno, Belarus died today at the age of 56.


It seemed that just yesterday, he was competing in the big tournaments, winning the Olympics and breaking fascinating records on the platform. And now he is no longer with us…


Our condolences go to the family and friends of Alexander Kurlovich.

The time has come,’ the Walrus said,

To talk of many things:

Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —

Of cabbages — and kings —

Lewis Carroll, The Walrus and the Carpenter


Some of the readers of the Chidlovski Blog Chidlovski may have been noticing over the past couple of years that this blog has become shorter in type and words.


The posts have become more as pictures with short captions as information about the bird pictures and the daily thoughts.


Projects have been put on hold and many things slowed down on my end.


There is a reason for this happening.


I have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and during the past several years, this disease has been affecting me as the disease has developed. At this time, shaking tremors and stiffness has affected my hands to the point that I am no longer able to type and compose various thoughts to post on my blog as I used to. I have been able to continue, however, these past years through my wife, Sue, who has kindly typed my thoughts and what I wanted to present on my blog. I have also become less able to put complete thoughts together and to remember what I wanted to say.


Thus I am now in a position to have to cut my blog into shorter segments. I can no longer answer the vast amount of emails I receive or all the pictures I have been doing in color and working with. My hands no longer let me access all of the detailed work I am requested to complete.


I thank you for all of your past communication and thank you for all your support.


Other than that, the journey goes on…
