VARDANIAN Youri (1956) Armenia / Weightlifting
Vardanian was the best weight-lifter in the world in the 83 kg category for almost ten years during which he collected all the world championship titles and world records. He established the 405 kg record, a truly remarkable feat in a category in which 400 kg is almost never reached.Yet this Armenian only took a single Olympic title, in Moscow in 1980. The boycott of the Los Angeles games by the eastern bloc countries robbed him of at least one title, since the winner in those Californian games only lifted 355 kg.
