Continuing our World Wide Rigert-O-Mania, we introduce the photo of super heavyweight Bohuslav Braum of Czech Republic.

Bohuslav Braum (born in 1956) represented Czechoslovakia in 1979-1984.

He won the bronze world and Eueopean medal in 1982 in Ljubljana, Yugoslavia and took the 5th place in the super heavyweight class at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.

On the national arena, Braum competed for the Baník Sokolov and Dukla Trenčín and won four national titles (1980, 1981, 1983, 1984)

Note: Special thanks to our friend Karel Prohl at for detailed info on Bohuslav Braum.
