The cover photo of our History in Color series depicts Olympic press lift by brilliant Soviet flyweight Vladislav Krishchishin of Lvov, Ukraine.


Vladislav Krishchishin (1946-2001) was a World champion (1969), European Champion (1969, 1970) and USSR champion (1969).


He set 15 world records.


After retirement from sports, he worked as a dentist.


One more interesting fact from history. The table below dispays all world records in the press lift in the 52kg weight class:
