VOROBIEV Arcady (1924) Russia / Weightlifting
Vorobiev had been a diver before turning to weightlifting in which he won two Olympic gold medals in the 91 kg category, first in Melbourne in 1956 and then in Rome in 1960.These medals vindicated his failure in the lower category in Helsinki in 1952, when he thought he had won the competition by lifting a heavier bar than his rivals. Unfortunately the judges refused to count it, and he only came third.At the end of his sporting career Vorobiev became a doctor, and wrote about weight lifting and coached the Soviet team.
