Andrei Chemerkin: Classic Weightlifter

1996.  Is that even considered a “classic”?  Anyway, Andrei Chemerkin (1996 Olympic Weightlifting Champion) was a massive Russian weightlifter that I had a major crush on.  The photo above is quite possibly a popular and an iconic image, especially to his fans.

I tried to upload the video of the screenshots from the left but it was so blurry that it’s
not even worth it.  The screenshots look somewhat clear as I had to “doctor” them.

I’m not really sure what he’s doing now, so any info would be appreciated.  And here are just some photos that I have collected or was shared with me from the past

[EDIT: I just learned that these photos came from the Andrei Chemerkin Unofficial Website.  Visit it now as it has tons of photos of the spectacular Andrei Chemerkin.]

The following collage was from FilmBear’s Andrei Chemerkin’s Fan Page.  As an added note, FilmBear also had fansites for John Goodman and Abraham Benrubi (but I can’t seem to access them, and if I could, I could not access the contents).
