Last Sunday, David Rigert turned 70!
For whatever reason, I sent my congratulations on so many outlets that… I forgot to mention about it on Chidlovski Blog Chidlovski.
We all have our favorite athletes. They don’t have to be world famous superstars. They can be someone we trained with – Boris or Hans, Jim or Mohamed, Johan or Jose… To me. it was David Rigert!
Happy Birthday, Mr. David Rigert!
On the cover photo from the Lift Up: History in Color series, David Rigert competes at the 1980 USSR Cup in Frunze. In a year, he will retire from competing… So many memories are associated with the idol of our young years.
