Rigertomania In Action


On the cover:

Heated pep-talk in our weightlifting gym before the Championship of Moscow in the early 1980s.

My coach Vladimir Glyadkovsky (on the left) gives some strategic input on upcoming competitions. I am in the middle. Garik (on the right) is my teammate in the 67.5kg class.

Like many others, Garik, my teammate in the 67.5kg class (on the right) and myself are wearing the coolest sailor t-shirts following the style established by legendary David Rigert.

We were all Rigertomaniacs back then :-)
