Yuri Vlasov. This photograph was taken on December 22, 1961 at the Russian championships held in Dnepropetrovsk. Vlasov had a pretty good day, breaking Schemansky’s record in the snatch on a fourth attempt and setting records in the clean and jerk (210 KG) and total (550KG). As a point of interest, eleven Russian lifters totaled over 1000 pounds in that contest.
