Casually Fabulous Norb Schemansky

When you work on old weightlifting pictures, at certain point, it becomes like a game.

Have I been here before? Have I seen this photo before? Have I done this photo already in the History in Color ?

Then, the layer of identification issues comes to play. What meet is it? What year? Where was it held? What is the weight loaded? What are the colors of the plates?  Do I have protocols for this?..

It’s like a game – very addictive and time consuming.

Do I really have time for this?

With Norbert Schemansky, it’s easier.

He was always fabulous. He was Mr. Weightlifting.

Here it goes – casually fabulous Norbert Schemansky (USA) at one of the local meets in the mid 1960s.
