The Last Champions of the USSR: 100kg Class

History in Color:

August 15, 1991, Donetsk, Ukraine – USSR national medalists in the 100kg class at the 1991 USSR Spartakiade and 1991 USSR Championships in Donetsk (left to right):

Nail Mukhamediarov (Uzbekistan, silver medal, 407.5kg), Timur Taymazov (Ukraine, gold medal, 417.5kg), Sergey Kopytov (Kazakhstan, bronze medal, 405kg)

It was the 10th USSR Spartakiade and the 66th USSR Championships – the last ones. After 1991, there was no USSR and no USSR championships. The end of the era.
