History in Color:

September 3, 1972, Munich, Germany – Soviet middle heavyweight David Rigert of Shakhty, Russia wins the Olympic press program in the 90kg class at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich.

David Rigert won with a 187.5kg press of the 1972 Summer Olympics.

Things went terribly wrong in the snatch – no lift at a 160kg opener…
