Champion of the 1976 Summer Olympics, Valery Shary of Minsk, Belarus cleans the weight at one of the competitions in the late 1960s.


So far, I wasn’t able to identify the tournament. My initial guess it’s the 82.5 weight class at the 1969 USSR Championship in Rostov, Russia but I am not 100 percent positive on it.
