Yuri Vlasov

Posted on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011 by John Wood

Soviet Weightlifting Champion Yuri Vlasov in his training hall with a Russian Olympic Set

The great Soviet lifter Yuri Vlasov was a Gold Medal winner at the 1960 Rome Olympics, a four-time Senior World Champion (1959, 1961-1963) and won six consecutive Senior European Championships (1959-1964). Vlasov set 34 World records over the course of his career. Also of note is the truly excellent Russian Olympic weight set at his feet… They sure don’t make ’em like that any more (both weight set AND lifter.)
