David Rigert: The Hero of a Memorable Epoch


The History in Color series features a photo of David Rigert, one of the most memorable and admired athletes for several generations of Olympic weightlifters and Iron Game fans.

There are quiet a few photos of David Rigert in this series – at different stages of his career with detailed stats, stories and matters of opinion.

This time, it’s just a poster-like photo.

David Rigert had many memorable ups and devastating downs in this sports.

Impressive but not a prefect career score.

No heroes are perfect. Maybe, that’s why we like and admire them…
